And what was in those ships, all three?

Every Christmas Eve I can remember has revolved around Nat King Cole's Christmas music. My mother is a bit obsessive about it, often playing only this album on repeat the entire night of our annual Christmas Eve Party. Seriously. Nothing Else. In a way, I understand. When JV and I discovered our shared love of Christmas music I wouldn't shut up about Nat King Cole, and while we've grown to discover many, many, many other great songs/performers, Cole will always be my favorite. Here are some of my favorites. There will be more, of course, sprinkled in with other songs, but this post is for Nat and Nat only. His Voice! Sorry this isn't longer. I'm a bit tired and have even more papers to grade. I just wanted to get some of these songs out there. They are long overdue here at 77 Santas (I know, I know, JV put up a few...but more is merrier).

ALRIGHT ASSHOLES. It's not even December yet and it's xmas-loving jokers like you that mean I have to watch Taylor Hicks singing White Xmas in primetime in NOVEMBER. And Sting w/ a lyre. WTF. You were in the POLICE, dude. Where's the man who sang my favorite version of Three Ships ever? A punk w/ the rest of them, I suspect.
