Christmas Countdown 2012: 29 days!

The Chipmunks

Only 29 days left until Christmas! I don’t know about you, but a slight tinge of panic is starting to set in. November just flew by, didn’t it?

Today’s countdown features the only Christmas song ever to hit #1 on Billboard’s U.S. singles chart. The Chipmunk Song by David Seville and The Chipmunks held the much-coveted #1 spot during the last two weeks of 1958 and the first two weeks of 1959.

Christmas countdown: 1 day

This is it! One day left! Tomorrow is Christmas! The late great Kate Smith had a voice like the equally legendary Ethel Merman. It could cut through a crowd like a laser beam. She probably barely even needed a microphone at her concerts. Here she is singing Christmas Eve in My Hometown on a Bing Crosby Christmas special, an appropriate song for today — Christmas Eve!
