Mel Torme

And so I offer you this Mel Torme Christmas story

Every year on Christmas Day, I link to my favorite Christmas story, which stars Mel Torme. This has been a rough year in many ways, but reading that story always makes me happy, and I hope it will do the same for you. Merry Christmas!

It isn’t Christmas without Mel Torme

Every year on Christmas Day, I link to my favorite Christmas story, which stars Mel Torme. It is often shamelessly ripped off a lot, which is a Bad Thing that one Should Not Do. So click over and read it, and may your heart grow three sizes today. Merry Christmas to you and yours from me and mine.

My annual salute to Mel Torme

Every year on Christmas Day, I link to my favorite Christmas story, which stars Mel Torme (a more recent posting of it is here). Apparently, this story is so popular now that it gets ripped off a lot, which sure seems to be contrary to the Christmas spirit if you ask me. But let’s not worry about such things this morning. Merry Christmas to you and yours. May your days be merry and bright, and may the new year bring you all the joy you can handle.

Speaking of the Christmas spirit, you couldn’t find a better example of it than what Jenny Lawson, aka the Bloggess, recently demonstrated.

When Lawson offered $30 gift cards to the first 20 people to comment saying they needed help this Christmas, her readers chipped in to take things even further.

Through her blog, she connected 689 generous readers with 450 families requesting holiday help. Collectively, they spanned the globe, from the U.S. and Canada to Europe and Singapore, and came from across religious traditions — atheists, Christians, Jews and Muslims.

“For me, this renewed the feeling of Christmas, that there really is a Christmas spirit and that people are good in such amazing and deep ways,” said Lawson, whose daughter, Hailey, is 6. “On Christmas Day, when my daughter is opening her toys, I’ll think of all the people who were able to give their kids presents and didn’t have to say, ‘There is no Santa’ because they couldn’t afford it.”

Read the posts in question here and here. May we all feel as good about our own Christmases this year. See you tomorrow.

As always, Merry Christmas, Mel Torme

It wouldn’t be Christmas if I didn’t link to my favorite Christmas story, about Mel Torme, now would it? Of course not. But since I have, now it is. Merry Christmas, Mel Torme, wherever you are.
