Christmas Carol War!
Listen now
Welcome to Interesting If True, the podcast that looks like Santa I'm your host this week, Shea, and with me are: I'm Aaron, and this week I learned that the Bible specifically forbids Christmas Trees, thanks, Joshua. I'm Steve, and I'm recording remotely because of reasons… This Week's Beer Fruitcake Dunkle from Altitude * Aaron: 5* Shea: 6? Christmas Carol Quiz Time * #1* #4* #7* #8* #11* #12* #15* #18 Christmas Carol * Thurl Ravenscroft sang "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" . . . and was also the voice of a very popular cereal mascot for over 50 years. Disneyland fans will know him as the bust second from the left on the Haunted Mansion! Who was the mascot?** Hint: He was great at it. * Tony the Tiger* The Roman Catholic Church condemned what 1952 song because they thought it promoted ADULTERY?* "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus"* They backed off after 13-year-old singer Jimmy Boyd explained that "Santa" is really just the kid's dad.* One of the most recognizable holiday tunes, this carroll was originally sung around Thanksgiving when it was written in 1857.* Jingle Bells* We have all heard this song but we may not have heard this version. On the Heavy Metal Christmas album who is heard singing a little drummer boy?** Hint: he had to take time off killing hobbits to record it. * Christopher Lee * What do the songs; Winter Wonderland, The Christmas Song, Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer, I'll Be Home For Christmas, Let It Snow!, and Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree all have in common? * They were all written by Jewish people.* Benjamin Hanby's classic christmas song written in 1864, was inspired Clement Moore's 1823 poem "A Visit from Saint Nicholas," and was the first song to mention Santa Clause.* Up on the Housetop* Rockin Around the Christmas Tree has been covered by tons of different artists but it's original recording was from 1958 by Brenda Lee who was surprisingly young. How old was Brenda when she recorded this classic hit?** 13* According to the Guinness World Records, the first song ever played in space was what christmas song on December 16, 1965? Astronauts Walter Schirra and Tom Stafford used a harmonica and a bell — also the first instruments in space — to perform the song aboard NASA's Gemini 6A space flight. It was part of a prank — they claimed the music was coming from a strange, flying object that looked a lot like Santa Claus.* Jingle Bells** What band currently has the record for most Christmas number 1 singles?
