Also, Has anyone noticed in the song "Sleigh Ride", in the line "There's a Christmas party at the home of Farmer Gray", some versions replace "Christmas" with "birthday"? And in the line "when they pass around the coffee and the pumpkin pie", "coffee" is sometimes replaced with "chocolate"?

And with the names of the reindeer, Donner is sometimes called Donder? For that matter, what exactly was the Donner Party? Plus Donder kinda sounds like dander.

Have you seen Donner's cut of Superman II? :roll:

A bit of trivia...

Did you know all the children in the Donner Party were the same age?*

The music is the worst part about this time of year, it makes me want to vomit.

Hearing Christmas music is tends to be really depressing for me, but I do like "O Holy Night."
