Christmas in Kuwait 2016 – Day 5

Five Golden Rings

Badum, bum, bum – if you don’t get that one then your Christmas music teachers have failed you.  In 1979 John Denver and the Muppets released the quintessential Christmas album “A Christmas Together”.  When I was a kid it was always a favorite around our house.  Even today, Sydney knows most of the album by heart – so the tradition continues!  It has always been a big part of our Christmas.  So much so, that it is the first Christmas album I bought on CD.  Many of the songs are absolute favorites of mine.  So many, that I was half tempted to post up the entire album for y’all.  Instead, I thought I’d share my three most favorite.

“We Wish You A Merry Christmas” comes in third with a bacon reference.  Second, is a round with Miss Piggy, Gonzo, and Scooter called “Christmas is Coming”.  First place goes to the story of Alfie the Christmas Tree.  It is a sweet song that I tried for years to illustrate when I was a kid.  I never thought I was able to pull it off well enough.  Not well enough to give it as a gift.  Flash forward to 2014 and I told Sydney about it just a few days before Christmas.  She surprised my Christmas morning with beautiful sketches that she used to start her own illustrations.  It is still a work in progress but I’m hopeful that the finished product isn’t too far off.

Also, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who sent their thoughts and prayers to all of us today.  Merry Christmas Dad.  We miss you.
