5 Days Left Until Christmas

At the North Pole:

Only 5 days are left until Santa makes his yearly run!  And the elves are very busy right now!  Everyone is now making the last-minute toys.  And to help speed things up they are given lunch and dinner right from the production line so they won’t waste much time.  And many of the animals are helping with simple tasks like painting.  It’s a very busy time right now!

Christmas Song:

Sleigh Ride is a popular light orchestral piece composed by Leroy Anderson.  The composer had the original idea for the piece during a heat wave in July 1946; he finished the work in February 1948.  I really liked the Leroy Anderson version   Sometimes having no lyrics can make a song!
