Once a year I get the chance
To wish you birthday cheer.
It pleases me no end to say,
I wish you another great year.

So happy birthday to you Clay
From the bottom of my heart.
And may your good times multiply,
Till they’re flying off the chart!

"Christmas Is Coming"

Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat
Please put a penny in the old man's hat
If you haven't got a penny, a ha'penny will do
If you haven't got a ha'penny, then God bless you!

The rhyme became the basis for the song "Christmas Is a-Comin", re-written by Frank Luther and performed by Bing Crosby, and others.

This montage will put you into the Christmas mood!

I forgot to add that the Christmas Waltz and Christmas is a Comin' sections were blank for me. I don't know if it's my computer or not.

I always look forward to your blogs Ashes. When I'm feeling a little blue they always cheer me up. The holidays are filled with memories of loved ones passed but also to remind us of many things to be thankful for.

I love to play Clay's Christmas music while I am clean house and getting ready for the holiday. My favorite is the photo of Clay setting in the chair. He is just waiting for us to set on his lap and tell him what we want for Christmas. And you know what that means! lol

Wishing you and yours a wonderful Holiday!

You have set the stage for a big birthday bash for Clay Aiken. Love the graphics, montages, and, of course, the puzzles.

Clay and Christmas music are synonymous. Thnx for bringing on the holiday spirit!

Thank you, too, for your kind remarks in the Carolina blog. Have an awesome weekend!

Awesome blog! It's just not Christmas until I hear Clay sing Christmas music. Now I am in the spirit! Love Bing Crosby, but sorry he has had to take a step behind my number one man!!!

I always love your blogs. They are always bright and cheerful. You can't beat Clay singing Christmas songs. He is the best. The Christmas Waltz was one of my favorite parts of JNT5.
