I'll keep trying until someone tells me to stop...

This is my favorite Holiday song, written by Lou and Peter Berryman, a pair of Madison, WI Singer/Songwriters, and very wonderful people.

For some reason, this song just stays in my head at this time of year.

Not that I know of, but I'm looking around for the Ultimate Jewish Holiday Song - "They Tried To Kill Us, We Survived, Let's Eat".

It is a real song, I swear! I've found lyrics, in the past, but need to parse out the music. (And okay, it really is a Passover song, but it works for almost ALL the holidays...)

Nice alternative Xmas song - I figured you must have written it until I read the post properly!

Heh - that would be pretty darn funny if it weren't so true!

Gotta admit your video was pretty funny - though my favorite of all Christmas parodies is The Twelve Pains of Christmas (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHpMZPYWDm0)

And to you, Stan.

Yes, the Sceptre is awesome. Since I've gotten it, I've played several instruments that I would like to have, but none that I've needed to have.

(I'm even thinking about selling the Epiphone ES-175 Reissue Hollow-body electric guitar I bought a couple of years ago - I can't even play it anymore, and the case alone weighs about what all of my ukuleles combined weigh. And I love that guitar! But not as much as I love my KoAloha Sceptre.)
