Santa's Land x2

It's Epiphany, and that means this is the last post of the year. And I'm going out the same way I came into the Christmas season with a share of some singles from the Santa's Land theme park in Cherokee NC. Last time I had six of them, but this time I only have two, but I was very happy to find them from a dealer I connected with on Facebook during the season. I thought maybe the series ended after the six I had, but these are the next two records in catalog number order, 107 & 108. I love being able to find more of a series, and I hope to have even more of these for you next year. If you've got any, please let me know, I'd love to take them off your hands.

1. Jeannette, Vicky & Teleah-He's A Jolly Old Man
2. Jeannette, Vicky & Teleah-Ho Ho Ho
3. Ray King & The Santa Land Singers-Santa's Christmas Party
4. Ray King-S-H-H Be Quiet

MEGA

And now that the last share is out of the way, I'll say thanks to all of my visitors for making it a great season. I shared out over 24 hours worth of songs from singles, and two albums a day for an entire month. I was very excited to be able to flood your collections with new music, and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Thanks again for all your visits, your comments, the music you shared back with me in many cases, and especially the many Christmas cards you sent my way. I think my GF really understands now just how much this music means to my many visitors. She says she doesn't mind the time I spend working on my music and the blog, but I think she's just being polite. I try hard to strike a balance between the time I spend with her and the time I spend on the computer, but sometimes I get wrapped up and suddenly it's bedtime... You know how it goes. But I digress. I will see you all in July, I hope, with some Christmas In July fun. I have no idea how that might go, or what I might do, but I'm sure I'll make something up for you. Merry Christmas!

  3. Hi Ernie! With my move to the desert I wasn't able to listen to hardly any of the goodies you offered, but I'm looking forward to already having a bunch of unheard stuff to explore for the next holiday. Cheers!

  4. You sure outdid yourself this year. If you posted 24 hours of music, I can't even imagine how long it took to prepare those records. Truly amazing!

    1. Just a little bit at a time, that's all it takes. I've got two singles in the can for next year already. :)

    2. Got a great head start for next year! It would be nice if you would do a post full of links to the non-Christmas Winter themed tunes you posted this season for those who want to enjoy them throughout the Winter months. Looking forward to checking out some more of your 2022 posts when I have the time. Great job!

    3. Thanks for the note. I'm not sure I'd be able to find all the winter-themed songs much better than my visitors could, since I don't have them tagged with anything special like I should. But a quick search of Winter or Snow should lead you to a lot of them. Enjoy!

  5. Dude! Gosh! Wow! Looking at my 2022 folder of your shares, close to 500 items in it. They're not all ZIPs, but it's an incredible amount of impressively generous work that you've done for the sole purpose of being a really generous guy. You are very much THAT GUY. I want to be THAT GUY too!
    Thanks so very much for your efforts and technical accomplishments, man. Take care and be well.

    1. I think there were 295 regular Christmas shares, 60 shares of Christmas from 78s, and a couple of reshares from previous seasons, so it sounds like you've got plenty in there that wasn't mine, or maybe duplicates. :) Well, it may be closer to that if you took the sub-folders out of the little batches I made, like Christmas Characters or war songs. That would probably get you close to the 500 number. Oh, I forgot about Christmas in July. That would get you there... Anyhow, it was a lot. I hope you found something good to listen to. Merry Christmas!

    1. That's because Bing's is the only version I see out there, and you can get it from any number of places. I try to shy away from the stuff you can legally download any old place. You wouldn't want the blog to get shut down, would you? :)

  7. Thanks, friend! The world of Christmas music would not be the same without you. You have contributed so much time and energy to share this with all of us. You rock!

  8. Overdosing on music from your blog, other blogs (Buster), Amazon Music, Internet Archive and even the old Ipod. Had to throw out another Bose unit today but I had a spare. Enjoy your time off from that hard work-if you do ever get to slack up a bit.

    1. I got a new pair of Noise Cancelling Bose Headphones for Christmas this year, the old pair died when I left some batteries in them for the duration of the pandemic. Hard to fly without them. Thanks for the note, and have a Merry Christmas!

  9. You are amazing, Ernie! It's been a great year! I was gone, over New Years, and you sure put out the music, just like Fire Works at New Years :) Over the year, you were one reason I was forced to break up my Christmas iTunes into 2!! No problem about that :) Looking forward to Christmas in July already :) On a side note, Merry Christmas to all Ukrainian's and those that celebrate in the Orthodox manner :)

  13. Thanks! Again, it's been one hell of a posting year. All the weekly posts this past year would have been more than enough let alone the xmas seasonal ones. Just an incredible amount of tunes. I thank you. My 80 year old Mom really thanks you. Now you have 6 months or so to make it up to the gf. And you should. ha.

    1. I've been trying to get some stuff in the can early this year, so I've already recorded one a day in January. We'll see how long I can keep that up. Thanks for the note, Merry Christmas to you and Mom, too!

  15. This story gets more and more implausible every year! Just 1 man named Ernie can gift out alllll this music in 1 month?? impossible! Ernie thanks again for all the shares, the music you dig up just seems to get better and better every year, and my whole family enjoys the fruits of your labour throughout the season... our heartfelt thank you to you and yours. -Seth

    1. It just takes a bit of planning, that's all. And lots and lots of time, you can't leave it until the last minute. :) Oh, and then there's the effort to find the music, which seems to get harder and harder every year. Thankfully I have some deep archives at this point. :)
      Thanks for the note, hope you had a Merry Christmas!
