Signs of the Season

You Are a Gingerbread House

A little spicy and a little sweet, anyone would like to be lost in the woods with you.

Somehow, David Letterman has become the harbinger of holiday cheer. It doesn't feel like Halloween is coming until he does the children trick-or-treating segment on his late night show and for Christmas (a holiday I don't celebrate, but do like the songs for), he ushers the holiday in with Jay Thomas telling a now classic and very funny story about Clayton "The Lone Ranger" Moore, then knocking a meatball off a Christmas tree on stage and, to close, Darlene Love singing "Baby, Please Come Home for Christmas." The lyrics say U2 on the linked site, but no one sings it like Darlene Love. Jay was one of my favorite DJs back before he left NYC to be an actor/DJ. And of course, Paul Shafer did his classic impression of Cher singing "Silent Night."
