Blog Caroling, Little Drummer Boy, Sung By John Denver

Copyright 2013, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

Thanks to footnoteMaven's sponsorship and challenge, it is time for the Christmas Carol - Blog Caroling. 

Just call me a child at heart, one of my favorite holiday songs has always been "The Little Drummer Boy", it really tugs at my heart.   In 1968 Rankin/Bass Productions released the animated television version of the story of the song.  I don't remember watching it back in 1968, but, by the 70's I had young children and this was one of the several holiday stories we found ourselves watching just about every single year.  Ya, I almost always teared up, sappy Carol.  I loved the story, I loved the animation, I loved the song.

When I went searching for a version on YouTube, I was delighted to find snippets of the original animated version and the song sung by the late John Denver, another one of my favorites.  WIN!!  And, here it is, I hope you enjoy!  The reason for the season.

May the blessings of the season be with you.

Love John Denver!! Conned my son into taking me to a John Denver tribute concert this past year. It was very well done, and worth every penny!
