Oodles Of Doodles CCXLI-Christmas In July 2007


Just in time for one of the hottest days of the year, here's a great Christmas doodle for you. This charming wintry scene comes from Fred Waring And The Pennsylvanians-The Sounds Of Christmas (Capitol T1260, 1959). You don't get much more homey and bucolic than this. Church bells ringing out, families chopping their own Christmas trees and exchanging gifts, people both sledding and sleighing... It's like a Hallmark greeting card crossed with a Norman Rockwell painting. Well, that may be going a little too far, but you get my drift...
If seeing this has wet your appetite for the sounds of The Pennsylvanians, you can check out this post for some of their music I shared last Christmas and this one for the Christmas before that. He also seems to be a popular artist for doodles. He's shown up 1, 2, 3 times before!
