This is not good sound but is an updated version of the song from 2010. He always made it current. The man conducting in the background is Dal Richards - He is in his late 90's and still going strong as a bandleader and hosts a radio program my Dad and I used to listen to Sunday nights. He (Dal) has met almost everyone in the industry past and present! This is actually who we met Rolf Harris through.

I've added Six White Boomers to bring it back to Christmas

Fantastic!! It's so great to see musicians and folks like Dal who continue to enjoy & share their passion. So many "musicians" nowadays probably won't even be remembered in 20 years - and then you have the ones that are 80+ and still rocking up on that stage!!

Speaking of "classics", I know tons of the traditional carols have been sung by LOTS of different people. And I love 'em all - I literally cannot get enough of Christmas music! But since I'm sitting here in front of a roaring fireplace & listening to carols, I thought I'd share another one of my favourites

Wow, the classic version! Love that you actually found a video of Nat! Thanks for sharing.

Got it! I'm in the South Okanagan

So glad you and your dad were able to share that together. Dal really does sound like a great guy.

No question, requiring no thought for me at all.

First, let me say that I was told, many years ago, that I could not have any children. Stubborn Irish that I am, that was an unacceptable answer. However, after lots of unusual, painful and expensive avenues, I did conceive and my first child was born on December 5, 1970.

The Christmas song that means the world to me is Barbra Streisand's and makes me cry every time. Shawn was the very best Christmas gift I could have ever been given. I'm crying now, but tears of joy.

Katie, thanks for sharing! I am surprised I never heard that one before. It is beautiful and your story makes it more so.

I just heard Amy Grant's "Grown Up Christmas List". Another of my favourites! But I do love Christmas (or any) music in general!

I too like John Lennon's So This Is Christmas.

Another one I listen to is Jona Lewie's Christmas Cavalry Song.

My favorite is Emmylou Harris singing Away In A Manger.
