ReGift for Christmas 2009 - Christmas Covers 2008 (Re-Post)


Horrible photo, I know, but I wanted to show you what my neighbours house looks like. We have tour buses, cars, police cars, and pedestrians on our street just to see this Christmas display. They do it for charity, I think they are raising funds for Sick Kids Hospital. It is overpowering but not to bad, it's just that when you drive up to the house your blinded by the lights of the display and cars that are parked looking at the house.

Anyway, I wanted to regift from last year one of my favorite Christmas songs and covers of it.


This year I have decided to be the evil dad who wraps the gifts so no one can figure out what they got.  Each one of the links above is a cover of Fairytale of New York, in my opinion one of the most powerful Christmas song to come out of the last thirty years.  It expressed the love/hate that we all have for this time of year.

Enjoy the season, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and whatever else you might be celebrating.
