I am still trying to get into the Christmas spirit, two days before the big day, and I know if I don’t get into it now, I never will. I loved Christmas as a child, and adore it as an adult, but the politics of it all is draining.
Anyway, last Christmas I heard this piece for the first time performed by the one and only Louis Armstrong, and I fell in love with it. Naturally, I wanted to share it. Louis’ gravel voice has a way of making everything sound that much more interesting, and this is no exception.
This may be my only contribution to the Christmas spirit this year.
The Night Before Christmas, read by Louis Armstrong
