I haven't done a countdown in awhile. I haven't had any thoughts of what to do. That changed the other day when I was driving. I was listening to Christmas songs and one came on and has inspired me for this countdown, of sorts. Not going to number how many because I am not sure how many I will find. The subject for it is odd Christmas songs. I begin with "I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas". What child wouldn't? The song was sung by 10 year old Gayla Peevey in 1953. It got all the way to number 24 on the charts that year. Enjoy one of the odder Christmas songs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmyqwyyFTd8 picture from google pictures. some information verified by wikipedia

Novelty songs like this were popular back then. Remember All I Want for Christmas are My Two Front Teeth?

I remember this song very well. In 1953 I would have been 7 and it would have appealed greatly to me.

That's a great way to start the odd Christmas song countdown. There are quite a number of them. I look forward to what your next one will be.

I remember this one. It is cute. I remember that Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer one, or something like that.

I do not believe I would have liked a Hippopotamus for Christmas when I was a kid.
