Thursday Thirteen - Twenty-fourth Edition

Got the idea for this week's Thursday Thirteen from The Life of a Mom.
Here are my Thirteen Favorite Holiday Songs.

1. I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas by Gayla Peevey

2. Dominick the Donkey

3. Christmas Canon by Trans Siberian Orchestra

4. Christmas Wrapping by the Waitresses

5. I Want an Alien for Christmas by Fountains of Wayne

6. Breath of Heaven

7. Christmas Eve on Woodward Avenue by Karen Newman (sorry - couldn't find audio for this one!)

8. The Chanukah Song by Adam Sandler

9. How Do You Spell Channukkahh by the LeeVees

10. Christmas Shoes by Newsong (even though it makes me cry EVERY stinking time!)

11. Christmas Time is Here by Vince Guaraldi

12. Snoopy vs. The Red Baron (Snoopy's Christmas)

13. Let There Be Peace on Earth

I tried to find one other one but couldn't....our high school choir used to do Silent Night while half of them sang, "Peace, peace, peace on earth and good will to all. This is the time for love. This is the time for joy. So let us all sing together of peace, peace, peace on earth."
Anyway, that one would have come up, but I couldn't find it...

What a great idea for a TT. Yesterday your mom was singing song #1. I couldn't get it out of my head the rest of the day.

All wonderful songs. Great idea for a TT. Thanks for the info on the blog with the eye information. We're keeping our fingers crossed. Though I've heard that it doesn't always work with one surgery. It could require several. I hope not. Uggg!!

I haven't heard of some of the songs on your list. The first sounds interesting.

I like the Adam Sandler song...he's a riot.

Happy TT!
