W.O.C.K On Vinyl - The Spirit Of Christmas (1998)

Before things get too serious
here at Rock On Vinyl, I thought it might be fun to post a song at the end of each month, that could be categorized as being either Weird, Obscure, Crazy or just plain Korny.

Well, another year has nearly passed and the festive season has once again taken hold of the Christian world for the celebration of our Lord Jesus Christ's birth.
OK, so 'The Spirit of Christmas' sometimes gets lost while we prepare for the big day and in the sharing of gifts with loved ones and friends, but deep down we all know why the day is special. 

Yes, it's nice to celebrate with a jolly old fellow called Santa and his reindeer and see the expressions on the kids faces while they unwrap their presents on Christmas morning, but let's ensure that we take time to pay homage to the one person in our lives who died on the cross for us.

Like previous posts of past, I have chosen to post the December 'WOCK on Vinyl' a little earlier than normal, to coincide with the Festive Season. This year I've chosen to make available a CD collection of Christmas tunes sung by an all Aussie cast, released by the Myer / Grace Bros back in 1998 as a fund raiser for the Starlight Foundation. Merry Christmas everyone and take care while traveling on the roads.
