10 Facts About Your Favorite Christmas Carols

I love this post I found on Mental Floss last year:

Special Guest
By Glen Gower, @XmasCarolFacts
Every year on Christmas Eve, families gather around the piano and sing carols. Some of these little ditties date back centuries, and the stories behind them are fascinating. I thought it would be fun to collect some of my favorite Christmas music facts and publish them on Twitter. Here are just a few of my favorites.
1. Felix Mendelssohn composed the tune to “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” as a tribute to printer/inventor Johann Gutenberg.
2. Dick Smith wrote the words for “Winter Wonderland” while recovering from tuberculosis in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
3. Australians have their own version of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” where all of the animals are replaced by wildlife from down under.
4. “Do You Hear What I Hear” was inspired by the Cuban Missile Crisis.
5. “O Holy Night” was the second piece of music to ever be broadcast on radio, in 1906.
6. In “Up on the Housetop,” Santa brings one of the kids a hammer and tacks. Another child gets a whip.
7. Elvis recorded “White Christmas” in 1957. Composer Irving Berlin tried to get it banned from the radio.
8. Gemini 7 astronauts Frank Borman and Jim Lovell asked to have “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” played for them while they were in orbit in 1965.
9. The original lyric for “Silver Bells” was actually “Tinkle Bells,” inspired by a tiny bell on the desk of composers Livingston and Evans.
10. The Grand Hotel from “It’s Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas” is believed to be in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.
When I’m not practicing Christmas music on the piano, I’m an Ottawa-based writer and producer. You can follow me on Twitter the rest of the year @glengower.

Recall - children's books titled "Count my kisses, 1, 2, 3" and "red, green, blue, I love you"

The following recall notice is from HSW:

Health Canada and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) report of a recall involving children's books titled "Count my kisses, 1, 2, 3" and "red, green, blue, I love you". 

A metal rod holding small beads on the cover of the books can detach and release small parts that present a choking hazard. A detached metal bar can expose a sharp edge posing a laceration hazard. 

See HSW Products tab for specifics on the affected items (including additional photos).

The recalled books were sold at Barnes & Noble, online at Amazon.com and by other booksellers and retailers from June 2013 to August 2013 in Canada and the United States.

Corrective Action:

Consumers should take the recalled books away from children immediately and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.


For more information, consumers may contact Hachette Book Group, Inc. by telephone at 1-888-965-5802 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website.

What To Do This Weekend - Doors Open

Uggghhhh..... School ....  :-S

I hope you are all getting back into the swing of the school year.... we are trying to adjust! I much prefer the late nights and lazy mornings of summer and I miss the children tons now that they are back! My attempts at developing a routine thus far seem to be in vain - I have spent the last two days running about. So, that is back on the agenda for next week ;-) One routine I am hoping will stick: posting What to Do this Weekend on a weekly basis again now that the summer break is over....that is the goal at least ;-)

This weekend brings Doors Open St. John's when several establishments throughout the City open their doors, free of charge, to visitors. It is a great opportunity to explore that place you have always wanted to see, like The Basilica, Clovelly Stables, the Central Fire Station and many more! See the website for more details and a complete list of participating establishments! 

Also this weekend we have the Family Fun Extravaganza - Big & Small at the Jack Byrne arena. This promises to be fun for he young ones: Big & Small award winning family singer Markus is performing; , Douglas John and Oucho the Monkey from Ants In Your Pants will be there AND after the show kids will have the opportunity to meet Howie from Almost Naked Animals! You need tickets in advance (see link).

There are many other fun family activities on around town! See below for a snapshot (full details can be found in the calendar). And, summer may be drawing to a close, but I will point out that there are still many playdates and playgroups for pre-schoolers and their caregivers! Why not check out the Family and Child Care Connections drop-in playgroups; Active Start program at the NL Sports Plex; St. John's Kid Hava Java Playdate or the Playdate in the Park with Oh The Joys of Discovery Toys? They offer great opportunities for your younger children to socialize :-) 

Have a great weekend!
