I turned on a local radio station today to hear more variety of Christmas songs instead of my normal Christmas CD's. My least favorite song of all came on -- "I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas". I usually try plug my ears and turn it off before it gets in my head but missed this time. So I guess I'll be singing that dumb song all night long. Why is it that the children enjoy it so? My brother-in-law knows it too so he likes to get me by singing the song and having the children keep it up. I guess it is back to my CDs and the traditional Andy Williams, Bing Crosby, and a few instrumentals too.
