This past Saturday, my family and I attended the December Nights atBalboa Park. We really enjoyed listening to your choirs. One of choirs performed a "70's Version" of "The 12 Days of X-mas." It was really cute and funny:) I wrote emailed the choir director for the lyrics as I thought some of you would get a kick out of them too. Here is the email I got back - enjoy!

Hi! I was delighted to hear from you and also to receive your nice
comments about our choir. The "12 Groovy Days of Christmas" is a fun
number to perform. Some of the lyrics are almost tongue twisters that's
why in our show this weekend, images of the items will be projected on
the overhead screen.
So...here are the lyrics. Enjoy!

Thinking back when my true love and I first met
One December in the nineteen seventies.
Twelve days of fits so rare;
Each gift, none can compare.
These presents given, I would like to share!
(Remember, this was the 70's, okay?)

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me
An 8-track by the Partridge Family.
On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
Two platform shoes, and an 8-track by the Partridge Family.
On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me,
Three headbands, two platform shoes, and an
8-track by the Partridge Family.
On the fourth day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Four Volkswagen bugs, three headbands, two platform shoes,
And an 8-track by the Partridge Family.
On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
Five, five, golden mood rings - ooo, ooo,four Volkswagen bugs,
Three headbands, two platform shoes, and an 8-track by the
Partridge Family.
Five more days of groovy gifts! The postman came in shifts!
Ten sets of door beads, nine paisley blankets, eight disco balls
Seven giant earrings, six leisure suits, Five, five golden mood
Rings - ooo, ooo.
Four Volkswagen bugs, three headbands, two platform shoes and an
8-track by the Partridge Family.
And on the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Eleven sticks of incense to set my spirit free.
It's the final day of giving
The twelfth day ends this vamp. My true love sends a present of
Twelve lava lamps, eleven sticks of incense, ten sets of door beads,
nine paisley blankets, eight disco balls, seven giant earrings, six
leisure suits,
Five, five, golden mood rings - ooo,ooo
Four Volkswagen bugs, three head bands, two platform shoes, and an
8-track by the Partridge Family.
Twelve days of gifts for me in those far out seventies. Merry
Christmas,
Merry Christmas - seventies! Boogie down!

That is one of the cutest variations I have heard in a long time. Beats the Bob & Doug McKenzie one even though I do like the Beer in a tree part. Very Happy
