Countdown to Christmas: Favorite Christmas Songs #13

#13-Bob & Doug Mckenzie-12 Days of Christmas

Good Day Eh!
Yes I have gone and done it again with this list in having a favorite song that changes the words of the original but the great antics of a few "hosers" and the fact that SCTV was and always will be my favorite sketch comedy show.

"The Twelve Days of Christmas" is an English Christmas carol that enumerates a series of increasingly grand gifts given on each of the twelve days of Christmas in the manner of a cumulative song. The song, first published in England in 1780 without music as a chant or rhyme, is thought to be French in origin. It has a Roud Folk Song Index number of 68. The tunes of collected version vary. The standard tune now associated with it is derived from a 1909 arrangement of the traditional folk melody by English composer Frederic Austin, who first introduced the now familiar prolongation of the verse "five gold rings".

The video below is an edited version of the song to enjoy the full song pick up the classic album by these great entertainers
Rick Moranis & Dave Thomas.

Also a reminder folks:
If there are any Christmas songs that you might like to see here on Behind the Scenes then please let me know as I will post them all together on Boxing Day and do a special post for you the reader, get them in--also even though I mostly cover Heavy Metal on here do not hesitate to send any requests in-you ask and I will play it for you.

Thank you for reading this
Anthony Nadeau
