HPA came together very quickly, a rapid response to the unkindness that has been inflicted upon the Hollis community. This a beautiful neighborhood, one that I admired from a distance before moving here. It is chock full of history, not just from the houses alone, but there are so many stories yet to be told by longtime residents. Kudos HPA!

12 Days of Christmas

On this the first day of our 12 Days of Christmas, here's a friendly reminder that this is the one time of year when the acts of giving and receiving are officially sanctioned by the warm and fuzzy feeling that lingers in the air and just seems to trail behind us everywhere.

This is a great blog. It's my favorite time of the year too! I really like Stevie Wonder. What a good song.

Mama was a very sweet person and had a very kind personality. I love Mama.

I remember a time when the season truly filled the air. We saw variety shows on televisions and families seemed less "virtual". Lived long enough to know that "life is what you make it".

Anyhoos... wanted to add a little note that the person who posted the Bing and Bowie video commented.

Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy is a Christmas song with an added counterpoint performed by David Bowie and Bing Crosby. "Little Drummer Boy" is a Christmas song written in 1957, while the "Peace on Earth" tune and lyrics were added to the song especially for Bowie and Crosby's recording. The song was recorded on 11 September for Crosby's 1977 television special, Bing Crosby's Merrie Olde Christmas. The pair exchanged dialogue about what they do for Christmas before singing "Little Drummer Boy" with a new counterpoint with original lyrics written for the special, "Peace on Earth". Bowie's appearance has been described as a "surreal" event, undertaken at a time that he was "actively trying to normalise his career" Crosby died on October 14, just over a month after recording the special. In the U.S., the show aired on 30 November 1977 on CBS.
