Christmas Videos (Part 2)

1987 was a good year. Not only did it bring about yours truly, but it also produced the CBS television special “A Claymation Christmas Celebration”. How can a stop-motion TV special hosted by two dinosaurs not be an instant classic? You can read more about it here, or just enjoy three of my favorite clips:

We Three Kings:

Carol of the Bells:

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer:

Christmas Videos

I just finished my holiday shopping today, and even though they’re calling for shorts weather in a few days, I’m starting to feel a little bit more of the holiday spirit. So here are three videos for the last week before Christmas:

Fish Lips Paper Designs

And the holiday posts keep coming…

If you’re looking for a way to be environmentally-friendly when you’re wrapping up your gifts this year, take a look at Fish Lips Paper Designs. It’s 100% recycled paper, printed with soy-based inks. Their design selection isn’t extensive, but in my experience the “Chilly Dogs” design (seen above) has always been a big hit.

Youtube: Straight No Chaser

Thanksgiving is officially over, and my Christmas records are in full swing as I join the race to the end of the semester. So for some early holiday cheer on this Monday of Mondays, here are the guys from Straight No Chaser singing their comedic version of “The 12 Days of Christmas”. Keep an eye out for the rendition of “Africa” they slip in at the end!
