Once in a year, it is not thought amiss

To visit our neighbors and sing out like this:

We wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Chanukah

We wish you a Merry Holiday

And a Happy New Year!

 

More Music And Snow Sports

Here’s another holiday treat. The Colorado Snowsports Museum has compiled a YouTube music collection with Colorado as a theme. Many of those videos are involved with skiing and snow sports. Here’s a timely tune from none other than the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.  As you will see, the whole playlist of additional tunes of Colorado and snow country music can be found in the right column when you play this video. Enjoy!
