Run-D.M.C. ~ Christmas in Hollis

You know you grew up in the 80s when you like rocking out to Run-D.M.C. One of my favorite groups back then and started my love for rap with them, the Beastie Boys, Fat Boys, Salt N Pepa, Eminem, LL Cool J. Who was your favorite?

The boys from Hollis, Queens, NY also made my favorite Christmas rap song – “Christmas in Hollis”. And don’t forget to do what? That’s right. TURN IT UP.

He’s Mr. White Christmas

Who remembers this one? Mr. Snow Miser? Mr. Heat Miser?

This really brings back the memories of living in Madison, WI in the duplex on Offshore Dr. This is definitely a classic, they don’t play this anymore. Is that showing my age?

Snow Miser is a character from the 1974 special The Year Without a Santa Claus. In the special, Snow Miser controlled cold weather all over the Earth; his archnemesis is his brother, Mr. Heat Miser. Santa woke up with a cold and his doctor tells Santa to take a holiday because nobody cares about Christmas anymore. So it is up to too elves, Jingle and Jangle to find people who still believe in Mr. Claus. And somewhere along the way Mrs. Claus gets joined up to fight the good fight and return Christmas!

And in eager anticipation ……   Mr. Snow Miser.
