Little Online Holiday Treats
« on: December 15, 2023, 07:01:24 PM »
I must have watched this 20+ times since I discovered it last week. Sandra Boynton's Snow, Snow Snow

I thought why not start a thread to post Christmas treasures :-)

I enjoyed that, Diane! Really nice animation and amazing to find out all the voices and instruments were by one guy. Thank you!

Absolutely delightful!

Thanks, Diane - I'm very happy to have that as my earworm for the day. Possibly the most festive I've felt so far this year.
I apologise, in advance.

I'm glad you both liked it :-) I have bought her wall calendar for the past several years - each day of the year shows an activity or event for instance today is maple syrup day.  I don't participate in everything of course, I don't even own a kazoo.

How on Earth do you survive without one…?

I just try to focus on the positives, I do have some hand bells :-)

Cool!

The trouble with hand bells is that they actually require some musical ability. The kazoo, especially in a crowd of other kazooists, not so much.
I apologise, in advance.

I bought a set of colour coded kiddie bells (3+) last year and some carol music to go with them - it was a bit of a laugh and minimum skills were required, especially when the bells were shared out so only one or two per person. :-)
