Music Monday

Check in with Soccer Mom in Denial who started Music Monday and see who else is playing

In the tradition of Christmas songs that others have been sharing lately, I’d like to add in one of my son and his grandmother (my mom’s) favorite holiday selections: Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer.

Zach had shared this song for the first time with Mom years and years ago--but as the years have added up, Mom forgets about it. So then, when she comes for her Christmas visit from the nursing home, Zach will haul out the tape player and share it with her. And once again they both sit and laugh and share rolled eyeballs as each verse unfolds.

Mom will ask him to play it again and again over the week long visit, until I think my hubby and I have had enough. But it’s pretty great that she and Zachery have this song to share each holiday.

Hope you enjoy it too--it’s just for some laughs and a giggle. Maybe you’ve got a grandma to share it with too!

My gramma and I used to laugh over that song when I was a teenager. She kidded that it was the reason she stopped coming to visit Hometown for Christmas.

My Mom likes this song...I am converting this to MP3 so I can burn it in a CD and give it to her together with her other favorite christmas songs...thanks for sharing!

Our version of 12 Days of Christmas is the Cajun one ("Six Pack a Dixie, Fried Onion Rings, 4 strings of light, 'tree' French Bread...."). I don't think my kids know the other one.

Sorry for the late link. Our internet access was down at work.

I always imagined my grandmother being the one run over by a reindeer. Sounded like her. Alas, grandma is no longer around (not reindeer, old age) but I still think of her when I hear that song - and smile.

It's absolutely hysterical. I love that song!
