This is about the only version of this tune I can stand–I’ve always thought “Walking in a Winter Wonderland” a pretty dopey song, but Peggy Lee jazzes it up good for the Hi-Fis of the hepcats of 1967. I hope your winter holiday celebrations are off to a nice start and that your travels haven’t been too hampered by the horrible winter weather that has afflicted just about every part of North America save this dry, warmish patch of the High Plains Desert. (Seriously–3 and 4 FEET of snow on the Western Slope, and we got nuthin’ here. Not that I’m complaining–much–but a few strategic inches of overnight snow would cover up the dead, brown grass and lend a festive air.)
Most of the extended famille Historiann are visiting from parts elsewhere this holiday, so posting may be light for the next few days. Just click the video above and picture me, cocktail in hand, enjoying not being a control freak perfectionist–for a change!
Let’s make it a little less Martha Stewart, and a little more Peggy (Lee and Bundy) this year, shall we? Happy holidays, and a happy year’s end to you all. Let’s call this an open thread for your fave Christmas musical stylings and/or cocktail recipes.
