Have yourself a merry Boomer Christmas
It's been a very Baby Boom kind of Christmas around the house the past couple of days.
What with all the holiday sounds of the 1960s and early '70s playing on the old hi-fi, how could it not be?
For example, you got your 1965 Great Songs of Christmas album from your local Goodyear dealer, and then you got Volume II of your 1969 holiday compilation LP, The Spirit of Christmas . . . exclusive to TG&Y five-and-dime stores.
I MEAN, you got your Steve and Eydie, you got your Anna Maria Alberghetti, you got your Danny Kaye, you got your Percy Faith, you got your Jerry Vale, you got your Robert Goulet and Andy Williams -- and you even got your Maurice Chevalier.
That there is some prime Christmas artistic stylings.
Of course, what's Christmas without A Partridge Family Christmas Card, the No. 1 holiday album of 1971?
Don't judge me.
Especially if you'd like any 8-track tapes in your stocking the morning of Dec. 25.
