On the third day of Christmas…

We three kings of Orient are,
One in a taxi, one in a car,
One on a scooter, beeping his hooter,
Smoking a fat cigar . . .

Carol singing is such a Christmas tradition and – if you’re me, at least – so is standing at the back of the choir singing the alternative version as loudly as possible. It’s not a proper concert unless the audience can hear both sets of lyrics, and it’s a great deal more fun!

Nor (as the BBC is proving again this year) is it a proper Christmas without a bit of Dickens in it. But who really has time for both Dickens and for a bit of Christmas parody? However to fit them both in? Well that’s today’s top tip, to make sure your Christmas has all the right ingredients: check out our fabulous parody I Am Scrooge: A Zombie Story for Christmas.

See Tiny Tim walk again! See if Scrooge will turn to the dark side, to save humanity! Have a humbug! Or better still . . . Braaaaiiinnnnsssss!

I Am Scrooge

God Bless Us, One And All!
