Happy Friday: What Does It Matter? The Christmas Parade’s In The Past!


I just read that since Disneyland has been closed all this time, there will be no Disneyland portion of the Christmas parade during this year’s Disney holiday special. I’d imagine that’s not the only change we’ll see, but at least Tituss Burgess will be there to gently shepherd us through.

But this announcement did remind me of yet another song from the seminal sing-along video of my childhood, Disney’s Twelve Days of Christmas: “Here Comes Santa” featuring the Walt Disney World Christmas parade. The nostalgia kinda fills the hole in my heart, y’know?

Alas, I could only find one video of the song, and the quality is TERRIBLE. On the other hand, there’s a pretty good rip of the full video on YouTube. In the immortal words of Liz Lemon: should we just watch it real quick? I think we should. We’ve had a tough year.

(If you’re not down for the full half hour, “Here Comes Santa” starts at 24:23. And while you’re in there, don’t sleep on Hip Hop Noel.” Just trust me.)

  1. When I worked at the Disney Store way back in the 1990s, Hip Hop Noel was on the in-store laserdisc for a few years in a row, meaning it would play in the store once every hour. I loved it! Others did not share my joy lol
