Every year around this time I quote the lyrics to some holiday related song and this year is no different. I've been listening to this song a lot as I walked the holiday-decked streets of DC, so it seemed appropriate. Plus, it really was the year of the Muppet this year.


One More Sleep 'Til Christmas

There magic in the air this evening

Magic in the air
The world is at her best, you know
When people love and care
The promise of excitement is one the night will keep
After all, there's only one more sleep 'til Christmas

The world has got a smile today
The world has got a glow
There's no such thing as strangers when
A stranger says hello
And everyone is family, we're having so much fun
After all, there's only one more sleep 'til Christmas

'Tis the season to be jolly and joyous
With a burst of pleasure, we feel it all right
It's the season when the saints can employ us
To spread the news about peace and to keep love alive

There's something in the wind today
That's good for everyone
Yes, faith is in our hearts today
We're shining like the sun
And everyone can feel it, the feeling's running deep
After all, there's only one more sleep 'til Christmas
After all, there's only one more sleep 'til Christmas Day 



And for those of you who never had a chance to see the Muppet Christmas Carol....



Happy Holidays to you and yours! (No matter which holiday it is that you celebrate.) May the coming year be blessed with good health, happiness and security!

Every year since I started this LJ, I've quoted song lyrics at Christmas. This year I'm going to do something a little different. Thanks to YouTube and the Sesame Street Channel, I offer clips from Christmas Eve On Sesame Street, including two of my favorite songs "True Blue Miracle" and "I Hate Christmas". Everybody has one Christmas movie that they watch every year without fail. This is mine.

True Blue Miracle is one of my favorite Christmas songs.




The older I get, the more I appreciate Oscar's song.




This is my mom's favorite.




This is a classic bit from the movie:




And as an added bonus for Muppet and West Wing fans alike, we have the Muppets singing Carol of the Bells:




MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE!!

Yesterday was Sesame Street's 40th Anniversary and it seems like everyone is getting in on the act, even Google! Today, I went on Sesame Street's YouTube channel and gathered as many of my favorite classic clips as I could find. There was the King of Eight, the Queen of Six (forgot about her!), an operatic orange, a Teeny Little Super Guy, Martians, and Tweedlebugs. Tatyana Ali (long, long before the Fresh Prince of Bel Aire) met Herbie Hancock and Tony Danza played tennis with Big Bird. There was even a very cute bit with Yo-Yo Ma! I thought I'd share them. Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street?







Even more under here... )

And for one last trip down memory lane, this was my Sesame Street...





Thank you for 40 wonderful, educational years, Sesame Street. Here's to 40 more!

Because there were just so many songs they needed their own post!  Thank you, YouTube and [personal profile] seri_scribble for the inspiration!!
