Flashback Friday – Jackson 5 "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town"

I'm still having a hard time wrapping my head around the idea that Christmas is this month.

I loved this version as a kid. I didn't know back then because Katherine Jackson is a Jehovah Witness, the kids did not get to celebrate Christmas. It was later in life via Elizabeth Taylor (random!) that Michael Jackson celebrated the holiday.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

It's a "ponte/bride" weekend in Italy. Tuesday is a holiday so a lot of people are taking Monday off.

I played this album until it warped and still play it this tie of year - but it's a CD! LOL! Thanks for memory and reminder - with set to Christmas my CDs are still shelved.

Love this song!

What do you think of the Jackson brothers doing a reality tv show?

ms. violetta - I am very scared! At one point Joe Jackson was going to involved MJ's kids but I don't think that's going to happen now. Thank God.

Hi! It has taken a few weeks but I have read every entry from your blog. I have been so inspired! Every set back and triumph you have documented has made me laugh, touched my heart, and made me take serious stock in making my own leap of faith into something unfamiliar, uncomfortable, and uncertain. You survived, better yet are thriving, and I believe so can I. Thank you so much, I don't think I have enough room to express how much reading this blog has meant to me.

This tune is on our Christmas playlist every year! I can NOT believe Christmas is only 17 days away. Where has 2009 gone?

Hope you had an amazing weekend.

benny - thank you so much for you comment and for reading my blog! Good luck with your leap. Yes it's scary but sometimes it's good to be scared/challenged.

Los Angelista - I have no idea where the year has gone. Or the decade, really. ha
