The Baron made Snoopy fly to the RhineAccording to wikipedia, The Royal Guardsmen recorded Snoopy Vs The Red Baron first,
And forced him to land behind the enemy lines
Snoopy was certain that this was the end
When the Baron cried out,
"Merry Christmas, my friend"
then recorded The Return of The Red Baron,
and finally Snoopy's Christmas.
Sure - I learned the words to Jingle Bells first, but it's Snoopy's Christmas that I still sing today!
So to properly celebrate my first Christmas in Germany, my sister took me across the street from her home in Wiesbaden (not that far from the Rhine) to the Südfriedhof Cemetery and the final resting place of Manfred "The Red Baron" von Richthofen
Christmas bells those Christmas bellsYours in crying out, "Merry Christmas, my friend,"
Ringing through the land
Bringing peace to all the world
And good will to man.
