A Very Raffi Christmas

I don't think anything can compare to the Christmas memories we formed as children. For my siblings and I, that includes our Disney Christmas VHS tape, Sunday school Christmas programs, Advent devotions around the Christmas table with the whole family, special Christmas tree ornaments, helping Dad hang the lights on the house outside, and of course, Raffi.

We have a very worn cassette tape that got a lot of play in our minivan, and you only need to say "Old toy trains" and any of us will chime in with "little toy tracks, little toy drums, coming from a sack carried by a man dressed in white and red..."

This one goes out to the Morbys:

"...little one, don't you think it's time you were in bed?"

Oh, and also this one!

Can't forget this song!

Okay, that's it- I promise. :)

What are some of your favorite Christmas memories and traditions? Do you remember Raffi?

Oh, I LOVED this! Thank you for reminding me to get out that worn cassette so we can listen to it!

Mickey's Christmas Carol, every year, without fail. (Still, when someone says "Merry Christmas!" I have an urge to return "Meeeewwy Chwissssmas, Uncle Scwoooge!")

Yes...I remember Raffi! Wonder where he is these days? Baby Beluga was one of my all time favorites.

Do you remember The Elephant Show?
And Joe Scruggs?

I know your house is a fun house!
