24 December: Elvis Presley: Silent Night

Published December 24, 2014

Another hectic day. As you may be aware, Christmas Eve is the Big Day of the holiday season in Sweden, as opposed to Christmas Day, which is the main day in many other countries.

So, I'm gearing up for watching Lassie Come Home on DVD with a good friend, while stuffing ourselves silly with sweets. After that I'll be dressing up as Santa Claus for the benefit of my five-year-old godson - please cross your fingers that he's still too young to see through the disguise. This will be followed by dinner and relaxation at another friend's place.

And by that time I will be good and ready for a Silent Night as described here by a performer who would have turned 80 in just a couple of weeks, had he still been with us.

All the best for the holidays, everybody!

Listen to Silent Night here.
