 More of the Lighter Side of Christmas
And now, the other things:
(your submissions, mostly)  

 

This just in (1/98): "We Wish You A Merry Christmas"  (sideways, sort of) 
Submitted but  allegedly not written by Howard Levitsky     
Click and it should play in its own window with Netscape Navigator, or save it to your disk and listen to it on your own synthesizer. And while it's playing, read on:  

"Walkin' 'Round in Women's Underwear"   (sung to the tune of "Walkin' in a Winter Wonderland") 

Submitted but allegedly not written by

Lacy things - the wife is missin,    
Didn't ask - her permission,    
I'm wearin' her clothes,   
Her silk pantyhose,   
Walkin' round in women's underwear.    

In the store - there's a teddy,   
Little straps - like spaghetti,   
It holds me so tight,   
Like handcuffs at night,   
Walkin' round in women's underwear.    

In the office there's a guy named Marvin,    
He pretends that I am Murphy Brown.   
He'll say, "Are you ready?" I'll say, "Whoa, Man!"    
"Let's wait until our wives are out of town!"   
    
Later on, if you wanna,   
We can dress - like Madonna,   
Put on some eyeshade,   
And join the parade,   
Walkin' round in women's underwear!  
 

  Mistletoe - A Plant for Romance and Unusual Propagation

The symbol of eternal life and peace, mistletoe is a plant with a romantic history. The Romans believed that kissing under the mistletoe brought good luck. An early Scandinavian legend tells of how the god of Peace was slain with an arrow from a mistletoe branch. He was restored to life by the other gods and goddesses and the mistletoe became a symbol of love. It was declared that anyone passing under its branches should receive a kiss. Today, mistletoe is hung in entrances and doorways for anyone who hopes to steal a kiss. A kiss under the mistletoe was once interpreted as a promise of marriage, as well as a promise of a long life and happiness.  
       The custom of exchanging kisses under the mistletoe remains popular in many European countries and throughout the United States and Canada.

(Now here's something you probably didn't know. The mistletoe berry is very sweet, and birds eat lots of them. But the berry also contains a powerful laxative, so it leaves the bird's system quickly and fairly intact. Coincidentally, it's also extremely sticky, so in order to rid themselves fully of mistletoe berries, birds must rub their rear ends against tree bark. This works well for the mistletoe, as this is how it gets planted in the bark of trees where it grows. So that's what you kiss under at Christmas time.)
