Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town

You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town

He’s making a list,
Checking it twice;
Gonna find out who’s naughty or nice.
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake

With little tin horns and little toy drums
Rooty toot toots and rummy tum tums
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake
Goodness sake

You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming
Santa Claus is coming
Santa Claus is coming to town

(Coming to town)
Santa’s a busy man he has no time to play
He’s got millions of stockings to fill on Christmas day
(Santa Claus is coming to town)
(Coming to town)
(Santa Claus is coming to town)
(Coming to town)

Christmas Traditions

By John Focht

The Christmas Season is about family, friends, traditions, and good cheer…right?  Of course.

This time of year always brings out the best of family traditions, including traditional Christmas shows and music.

Hey, I’m not afraid to say I looked through the TV listings to find out when Charlie Brown was on this year.  The only problem was I was fighting my kids as they wanted to find out what night Prep & Landing was on.  Prep and what?

When we searched for The Grinch, they stopped at Jim Carrey while I wanted to keep looking for Dr. Seuss.  I wanted to play Deck the Halls while they were watching Shrek the Halls.

My mornings of getting up and pouring myself a cup of coffee the past few weeks were also met with being startled with The Elf on the Shelf popping up in the refrigerator, sugar jar, cereal boxes, and hiding behind kitchen chairs.

What happened to the days when Santa’s elves would just hang at the North Pole and make Christmas gifts, and Santa would just watch us through his magic crystal snowball?

As I have wandered through yet another Christmas Season, I have come to realize the traditions of Christmas are still with us, they have just taken a different shape.

If The Muppets can adjust from doing a Christmas show with John Denver to Lady Gaga, I guess I can manage if It’s a SpongeBob Christmas! is now a bigger hit than the Heat Miser and Cold Miser.

After all, a generation ago, family and friends would walk house-to-house and neighborhood-to-neighborhood Christmas Caroling.  I am pretty sure if anyone tried that today, they would be arrested for creating a riot.

So, as you slog down your nog, and settle in front of the fire, don’t be too concerned that while you are dreaming of a White Christmas your kids might be celebrating a Hairy Christmas with the Robertson Family.

Run Run Rudolph

Out of all the reindeers you know you’re the mastermind
Run, run Rudolph, Randalph ain’t too far behind
Run, run Rudolph, Santa’s got to make it to town
Santa make him hurry, tell him he can take the freeway down
Run, run Rudolph ’cause I’m reelin’ like a merry-go-round

Said Santa to a boy child “What have you been longing for?”
“All I want for Christmas is a Rock and Roll electric guitar”
And then away went Rudolph a whizzing like a shooting star
Run, run Rudolph, Santa’s got to make it to town, come on
Santa make him hurry, tell him he can take the freeway down
Run, run Rudolph, reeling like a merry-go-round

Said Santa to a girl child “What would please you most to get?”
“A little baby doll that can cry, sleep, and wet”
And then away went Rudolph a whizzing like a Saber jet
Run, run Rudolph, Santa’s got to make it to town
Santa make him hurry, tell him he can take the freeway down
Run, run Rudolph ’cause I’m reelin’ like a merry-go-round
