The morbid third verse of We Three Kings is oft unprinted and heck, I'd lost track of what fun it might be to sing it :)

The three chessnuts boasting by an open foyer is fabulous. And I've promptly been told that some Americans might even pronounce it foy er, but it still works as foy eh?

Miles Davis (I think) once recorded Blue Christmas ...when the greedy give a dime to the needy... Makes you think Miles wasn't exactly in the spirit? Now that, I wouldn't have minded hearing in the Blockbuster early in the month...
