Admittedly, Bastaradette has a warped view of Christmas. Whenever we think of Christmas we think of Hawai’i. This comes from an early and incessant exposure to the Andrews Sisters hit Christmas Island. We also like Leon Redbone’s version, but somebody stole our tape at an office Christmas party years ago, and the version isn’t on YouTube.
Despite knowing better, we spent the other evening on YouTube looking for a good video of Christmas Island. Unfortunately, none we found were acceptable for a high class blog like The Daily Bastardette.
What we did find, though, is Puka Shells by Ukulele Ray and the KoKoNutz:
It’s Mele Kalikimaka time in the islands…
(not to be confused with Arthur Lyman’s Puka Shells)
So, kick back with a Suffering Bastard, or two or three, and enjoy.
