Flashback Friday: “Have a Holly Jolly Christmas” by Burl Ives

Burl Ives will forever in my mind be embodied by the magical snowman from the stop-motion film Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Classic film from my childhood. Yukon Cornelius is the man, and “I wanna be a dentist” is one of the few Christmas-originated phrases allowed to be used year-round. Hope you enjoy this version of the song, one which has a little faster tempo than the master track (I prefer this one).
