11 Hysterical Christmas Parodies found around the World

I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a joyous and peaceful Christmas and a prosperous New year. May 2018 be a good year for all of you and may you achieve all you set out to do.


Christmas is a conflicting time, a time of celebration as well as a time of sorrow. Sometimes a great time to unite with family. Others don’t necessarily get that opportunity, for various reasons. My wish to you, whether you are surrounded by your family and friends or having a quiet one alone, may it be a wonderful time.

One thing that stands out, is the traditions we all treasure. One that I can remember from my childhood days is the unpacking of the Christmas decorations and lights. We always had to unravel the entwined birds nest of wires. After all that effort they wouldn’t work. It was a mission to test each bulb to find which one had blown. These days it’s a bit easier with LED lights.


My mission this Christmas is to drive you totally scatty over the Festive season with another tradition. Listening to Christmas lyrics.

I’ve done some virtual pouncing around the world, looking for all the different versions of ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’. Do you know how many versions there are of this video? Here are a few for you to enjoy…ok, more than just a few, but in the spirit of Christmas, I didn’t want to be stingy.
