Erik’s Advent Calendar-12 Days til Christmas!


It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and it’s coming fast! A favorite of mine as a kid was the Advent Calendar. For those who are unfamiliar with the concept, Advent Calendars counted down the days until Christmas with fun little calendars. Usually hidden behind the numbers of the calendar were little toys or candy. Little gifts to have fun with before Christmas Day. With that in mind I present to you my calendar full of Christmas Joy. Every day we will knock another down the peg and share a bit of Christmas joy either in the form of a film, a theme park celebration or a special event or show. We will showcase something new and fun every day until Christmas! So get ready to unwrap and share some holiday cheer!

12 Days til Christmas-Christmas in Hollis
Released in 1987 as part of two compilation albums, Christmas in Hollis became not only a landmark in Rap, becoming one of the first Rap songs to achieve commercial success, but also a holiday favorite.
Run DMC did the song with producer Rick Ruben, and it was prominently featured on the album “A Very Special Christmas”, the proceeds of which went to benefit the Special Olympics.
The video has immortalized the song with a crazy elf, and an unconventional Santa and reindeer.
