#359 Snoopy's Christmas

Remember Snoopy's Christmas?
The Baron made Snoopy fly to the Rhine
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"
According to wikipedia, The Royal Guardsmen recorded Snoopy Vs The Red Baron first,

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 bells
Ringing through the land
Bringing peace to all the world
And good will to man. 
Yours in crying out, "Merry Christmas, my friend,"

  1. I had that album as a child, and remember it fondly.

    Unfortunately, I now have a song virus.

    Happy New Year!
