It's Christmas Day, December 25! That brings us to our final "Under the Tree, A to Z" letter of the alphabet, Z.
This may come as a shock to you, but it's rather hard to find a Christmas song that starts with the letter Z. There just aren't that many that I'm aware of. Ironcially, we've previously featured such a song before on Steve's 25 Days of Christmas Music
. Back in the 2002 Archive
you can find "'Zat You, Santa Claus
" by Louis Armstrong. But since we don't reuse songs during the 25 Days
, I had to keep fishing.
That brought me to 6-year-old Barry Gordon's Zoomah, The Santa Claus From Mars
, supported by Art Mooney And His Orchestra. If the name sounds familiar, it's because Gordon was featured in another song
found in the 2005 Archive
-- and also the really annoying kid who sang that "Nuttin' for Christmas" song. Hey, what can I say, the song starts with a Z!
And with this song, we draw Steve's 25 Days of Christmas Music
, "Under the Tree, A to Z" to a close. I hope you enjoyed this unique Christmas walk through the alphabet. Just a reminder that today is also the final day to post a comment in order to qualify for the final "Under the Tree, A to Z
Weekly Avatar of Honor". So before you get too carried away with Christmas cheer, post a comment or two. Thanks again for participating this year!
Voola Voola Vars!
