Advent Day 6: How Many Versions?!

When choosing this version of this song, I sorted my iTunes by title, and determined I have14 different versions of Jingle Bells. It started several Christmases ago, when my older nephew was just a baby and was obsessed with this song. So I made my sister a cd of nothing but Jingle Bells, everything from Jimmy Buffett to barking dogs. The nephew loved it; the sister still has not forgiven me for the dogs.

This version appears in the BEST CHRISTMAS MOVIE EVER, A Christmas Story. It's playing as Ralphie and Randy are standing on the stairs, gazing at their presents in awe.

I am going to have to listen to all of these when I am not at work. I've added you to my site so I can remember you. I know you come by my site all the time. I should return the favor more.

This version totally rocks. To the extent that anything Bing Crosby does could "rock" (David Bowie duet notwithstanding), anyway. I've always liked it.

The dogs? Hell, I don't have that CD and I'm not sure I forgive you, either. Yeeks.

I am %100 in agreement with you. A Christmas Story is without a doubt the greatest Christmas movie ever made.
