Well, why not, it’s 2 days from December, the lights are everywhere in my neighbourhood, the daylight starts fading at 3:30 pm. So let’s pick some holiday tunes ; here’s one written by Johnny Marks that Brenda Lee had a hit record with in 1958. I play it on my 1978 ODE Style C with guitar accompaniment.

I have an electric Santa that, for some reason sings this to me in Brenda Lee’s voice.
I must say, though, your version sounds much better!

FYI…. “ In November 2023, Lee released a music video for the song, and in December 2023 the song topped the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, marking Lee's third number-one single and making Lee the oldest artist ever to top the Hot 100 at age 78. The song also set the record for the longest period of time between an original release and its topping the Hot 100 (65 years), as well as the longest time between number-one singles by an artist: 63 years, one month and two weeks." 

- go figure, Wow!
