25 Days of Christmas: Day 24

Every Christmas Eve, Dad has read "'Twas the Night Before Christmas." When we were younger, he would start switching up the words and put in crazy things, and Abby and I would get the biggest kick out of it and scream, "NOOOOOOOO! It's....." And then fill in whatever word he messed up! Several years back, I don't know, maybe even like five years ago, Dad just started completely rewriting the whole story! It basically recaps the entire year and funny memories since the last Christmas! Here are a few things this year's story included:
-Abby getting into Longwood
-Our driveway currently housing six vehicles, when there are only four people in my family!
-Matt getting to play in the Sleigh Ride Game (more to come on that tomorrow! song hint? I think so!....)
-The loss of an amazing friend, Casey

And, of course, another great Christmas story is the story of Jesus' birth, and I don't think anyone can tell it quite as good as Linus can. You must view this:

So, #24 is going to be a double-dose of songs. But they're both related!

#24 part A is the regular Charlie Brown theme song that always makes me dance like the girl characters do. Trust me, I can show you some pretty awesome moves.....

#24 part B is O Tannenbaum (O Christmas Tree) from Charlie Brown. There's just something that makes you feel good when you hear that one particular version of this song.
