Day 11 – 25 Days of My Favorite Christmas Songs

Well, we’ve made it to day 11!  I hope everyone is enjoying my favorite Christmas songs.

What’s Christmas without a hippopotamus?

“I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” is a Christmas novelty song written by John Rox (1902–1957) and performed by Gayla Peevey (10 years old at the time) in 1953. The song peaked at number 24 on Billboard magazine’s pop chart in December 1953.

Day 6 – 25 Days of My Favorite Christmas Songs

Third Day is one of my favorite Christian rock bands. Their music is awesome with a bonus being the positive messages in their lyrics.
My sister introduced me to Third Day in 2004 by taking me to see them in concert. Since then, we’ve made it a tradition to see them when they come to our area. It’s been a good few years since they’ve been here, but I am thankful for the memories of years past.
