Christmas Is, sung by Lou Rawls, is my song of the day. This song makes me sway and swoon. It's from Lou's album Merry Christmas Ho Ho Ho, which I believe was released on Jan 1, 1967. Missed the Christmas album buying window by that much.
Christmas Is has been a mainstay on my holiday play list for years. The opening sax is as smooth as a hot chocolate martini. Hmm. That's sounds yummy right about now. If you'll excuse me, I have a drink to make. But first, let me put on a some Lou Rawls.
