CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN - NUMBER 4 December 20, 2016 09:30


Today is Tuesday, and it's the day that I'm revealing the fourth best Christmas song of all time on the Hotflush Recordings blog.

- Why, Tonka?

- Well, I'm on a proper wind down for Christmas now, lads, and this kind of content is fucking easy to fire off in a hurry.

So, get off the edge of your seats and scroll down...NOW.

Johnny Mathis - When A Child Is Born

Although Johnny Mathis doesn’t mention the baby Jesus by name, there is no doubt that this song is all about the virgin birth of our Lord Saviour, Jesus Christ, Our Saviour.

This is what Christmas is all about, ladies and gentlemen. Let us not forget that YOUR new PlayStation 4, YOUR new DVD player and YOUR new puppy is being delivered by Santa because 2016 years ago this month, the three Kings of Bethlehem delivered gifts to Mary, Joseph and their new lickle kid, Jesus.

- Why Tonka?

- I don’t know.

This is what Christmas is all about, though. Santa wouldn’t have started delivering presents to us if the three Kings had never followed that star to Bethlehem; if Joseph hadn’t plonked his heavily pregnant missus and all of their possessions on the back of that donkey before setting off on a MASSIVE journey to Gethsemane, there’d be no flying reindeers doing all of the donkey-work for Santa, and if that tiny star didn’t exist in the sky, Santa wouldn’t have a fucking clue where to moor himself on his round-the-world journey on Christmas Eve. Know what I mean?

No Jesus: no Santa.

That’s the message Richard Dawkins doesn’t WANT you to hear.

I love When A Child Is Born by Johnny Mathis because it’s nice.
