The Best Christmas Album Of All Time

They were the last Disco Era group that I ever thought would put out a CHRISTMAS album and knock it out of the park. They even wrote this song which is my personal favorite Christmas song. YES, even my dark and black heart can have a favorite Christmas song? I once taught a kindergarten class to sing this for their part of the annual crappy School Christmas Show. We just acted it out with kids either singing in white robes or acting out the roles for the players in the story. Big hit with those Catholic school parents and the Principal was very happy that I didn't choose to introduce Krampus to my little production. I didn't get the white robes I was promised if I crossed the line. I am an ARTIST here and I was indignant about they thinking I would just phone is MY ACT with those kids just because their teacher didn't want to put in the time to do it because she was feuding with the parents and was being a bitch. And old, cranky nasty kindergarten teacher that I hoped a powerful wind in the playground would just carry her away. She was that hateful. So I rescued the kids and they rocked it out Boney M. I am glad that this group still gets cheques every year for this work. It was the freshest thing to happen to Christmas Carols since the 1940s and 1950s

But seriously. If you lived in the late 70s you HAVE this piece of vinyl in your collection along with Night Flight To Venus. Everyone does and there is no shame in that.

Yes, I had the LP, then cassette, now CD. I've bought Boney M's Christmas masterpiece THREE times so far! They've retired on my royalties alone!

Yup. Boney M was the real deal. I got into more good music in my life because I loved the bad music of Boney M so much that they get a pass for life from me.
