Holiday Clip of the Day...

December 26th is my least favorite day of the year.

Christmas goes away much too abruptly.

For a whole month, Lifetime plays nothing but Falalala Lifetime movies...and then on December 26th, it's back to regular-old "Give Me Back My Baby" films. (Not that I have anything against "Give Me Back My Baby" films.)

106.7 Light FM has twenty-four hours of Christmas songs from Thanksgiving until Christmas night...and then, just like that, we're back to "Sometimes When We Touch" and "Love Lifts Us Up."

Even that streetcorner saxophone player...he's been playing "Auld Lang Syne" and "Joy to the World" for a month...the day after Christmas? He's back to playing "My Way."

It's sad.

I think they should slowly wean us off of Christmas movies and music, and then not stop completely until, oh, say...February.

I was probably the only kid in the world who used to feel sad on Christmas Eve because I knew that Christmas would soon be over.

Here's a song from one of my favorites ever...Christmas Eve on Sesame Street...it seems a very appropriate way to end my "Holiday Clip of the Day" series.

Keep Christmas with you...

When Christmas time is over and presents put away, don't be sad
There'll be so much to treasure about this Christmas day and the fun we've had
So may happy feelings to celebrate with you
And, oh, the good times hurry by so fast,
But even when it's over there's something you can do to make Christmas last

Keep Christmas with you
All through the year,
When Christmas is over,
You can keep it near.
Think of this Christmas day
When Christmas is far away.

Keep Christmas with you
All through the year,
When Christmas is over,
Save some Christmas cheer.
These precious moments,
Hold them very dear
And keep Christmas with you
All through the year.

Christmas means the spirit of giving
Peace and joy to you,
The goodness of loving,
The gladness of living;
These are Christmas too.

So, keep Christmas with you
All through the year,
When Christmas is over,
Save some Christmas cheer.
These precious moments,
Hold them very dear
And keep Christmas with you
All through the year.
