25 Days Of Christmas Songs: Day Twenty Four (Christmas Eve!)

Here we are… Christmas Eve… everyone getting that last-minute shopping or wrapping done? I have a few things left to wrap… but other than that, I’m all done! I remember days of wrapping till five in the morning though… and I don’t miss them, lol.

Now when I was growing up, we went through different stages on how to open presents. Most of my childhood we did it the traditional way… Christmas Morning. Then we started opening up one gift on Christmas Eve. This was kind of cool. You hoped you picked a good one, but most the time it was socks. Later my mom decided it was best we open all our presents Christmas Eve… that way we could play all night and let her sleep in Christmas Morning… lol. It worked out for everyone!

Nowadays, with my own kids, it’s strictly traditional… wait for the kids to go to sleep and then starts the task of filling the space up beneath the tree (after last-minute wrapping is done of course), then we are woken up at the nutcrack of dawn (lol, like nutcracker… nutcrack of dawn… I crack myself up) and then begins the opening of the gifts (some of which were only wrapped for a few short hours) and then comes the breaking of the gifts… yes, it’s very traditional.

But here in Zero’s World we are going back to my family’s short tradition of one present on Christmas Eve… and I hope you all like it!

While looking through and posting Christmas Songs I found a lot of cute cartoon videos made by different people…. some were really good. So I thought I’d share one that I made back in 2011. It was for the band Sin City Sinners (they have 2 Christmas Albums so you know they are doubly cool).

I had made a video for one of the songs off there first Christmas Album:

a sinners christmas

And yes, that’s my Christmas Tree:

Sing Along:

Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree

Rockin’ around the Christmas Tree
at the Christmas party hop
Mistletoe hung where you can see
Ev’ry couple tries to stop

Rockin’ around the Christmas Tree
Let the Christmas Spirit ring
Later we’ll have some pumpkin pie
and we’ll do some caroling

You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear voices singing
“Let’s be jolly; Deck the halls with boughs of holly”

Rocking around the Christmas Tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone’s dancing merrily
In a new old-fashioned way

You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear voices singing
“Let’s be jolly; Deck the halls with boughs of holly”

Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house

Not a creature was stirring not even a mouse

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care

In hopes that St. Nicholas soon be there

You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear voices singing
“Let’s be jolly; Deck the halls with boughs of holly”

Rockin’ around the Christmas Tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone’s dancing merrily
In a new old-fashioned way

You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear voices singing
“Let’s be jolly; Deck the halls with boughs of holly”

Rockin’ around the Christmas Tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone’s dancing merrily
In a new old-fashioned way

Merry Christmas Vegas!
