Hello Everybody, Autumn the Puppy AND Ms. Waxy Dragon here to share with you some of our favorite Carols of the Christmas season.

NOT a brown noser!
WAXY: Right you are Autumn, and one of my favorites is Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. The comeback story of Names, a poor little reindeer who makes good despite how Olive always picked on him.
AUTUMN: Waxy, what are you talking about?
WAXY: Well, it's right there in the song. "Olive, the other reindeer, used to laugh and call him Names."
AUTUMN: Well, at least it's not Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer.
WAXY: What? When did that happen?
AUTUMN: No Waxy, it's a comedic carol by Elmo and Patsy.
WAXY: The cute, red furred Muppet?
AUTUMN: No Waxy. A different Elmo. Anyway, the video clearly shows Grandma safe and sound at the end. But a lot of people got upset when the song first started playing on the radio.
WAXY: I have no idea why. After all, Santa would never do such a thing. Anyway, another of my personal favorites is The Chipmunk Song.
AUTUMN: A perennial favorite for young and old alike.
WAXY: Do you think Alvin ever got his hula hoop?
AUTUMN: I'm sure he has by now. I know he loves his harmonica. And I also know of Yogi Yorgesson.
WAXY: Who?

AUTUMN: Yogi was one of the many characters portrayed by a comedian named Harry Stewart, who was big back in the 1940s and 1950s. Two of his best holiday routines were Yingle Bells and I Yust Go Nuts At Christmas.
WAXY: Sounds like fun.
AUTUMN: Yes, they are. I'll play them for you after we're done here.
WAXY: But there's just so many great Christmas songs. Like Rosemary Clooney singing Suzy Snowflake. Captain Kangaroo reading the story of The Littlest Snowman With The Candy Cane Heart.
AUTUMN: A personal favorite of mine.
WAXY: But my point is that I hope everyone comes back next weekend when we talk about more Christmas songs.
AUTUMN: Take care everybody!
