My favorite version of We Wish You A Merry Christmas is performed by John Denver & The Muppets, and we featured that track back in 2002 (http://forums.tannerworld.com/showthread.php?t=1813). During the song, Miss Piggy confuses the reference to "Figgy pudding" as "Piggy pudding" and has a little conniption. It's all quite delightful.

However, since we've already used that version, I present to you this track by Roger Whittaker. There are no pigs mentioned, but he sure does make a big deal about figgy pudding. You hear it a lot... and even in a round! Personally, the stuff sounds amazingly gross (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Figgy_pudding).

While you are here, don't forget to check out our Tour of View-Masterville (http://www.steveandamysly.com/2010/12/23/view-masterville-a-christmas-village-theme/), the Christmas village I built underneath our Christmas tree this year. You'll have a "reel" good time! :)

Just one more track to go for this Culinary Christmas celebration during our 25 Days. What will it be? Tune in tomorrow to find out!
