Phew!!!! Our 2006 Christmas parties wrapped up on Sunday. Great, great fun. It's an odd feeling when the parties are done. They really are a ton of fun, the kind of events that make everything worth it, but they wipe us out as well. We'll all be enjoying a nice winter vacation starting the end of the week.
Here's a video of one of the Tokyo parties singing What Do You Want for Christmas? off of Super Simple Songs.
Santa was indeed on his way, but he got a little lost...more on that tomorrow.
What Do You Want For Christmas was one of the first songs we made for our students several years back and it's really exemplary of what the Super Simple Songs concept is all about; a simple, non-intimidating tune, basic lyrics which emerging speakers (whether they be young native English speakers or ESL/EFL students) can learn quickly and confidently through gesture, and lots of space for movement and dance.
If you are looking for a last minute, simple children's Christmas song, What Do You Want for Christmas is available for download at iTunes, Rhapsody, MSN Music, MyKidsMusic.com, etc., etc., etc.
So, what do you want for Christmas? Better yet, what do your kids want for Christmas (and is Santa going to bring it?) Fran over at About: Kids Music asks an interesting question. Her six year old wants an iPod for Christmas. Pop over there and tell her...would you buy an iPod for a six year old?
