Have a Soggy, Foggy Christmas!

Marty (

) and I wrote a song parody a couple of years ago to the tune of “Holly, Jolly Christmas” from the Rankin-Bass animated production Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964). This TV special plays a large role in Hale family mythology, because I am often likened to the Bumble, or Abominable Snowman (see above), being tall, fat, shaggy, bad-tempered, misunderstood, and frequently accompanied by a toothache, or so the mythology goes. (Overall, I’d rather be a moose.)

Marty and I love Christmas (or whatever you prefer to call it), and we love our city. So listen:

It’s a soggy, foggy Christmas
In Seattle every year;
As you know, there won’t be snow,
But have a micro-beer!

It’s a soggy, foggy Christmas,
All the boats are lit up fine.
No-one’s out to run about,
They’re going to shop online.

Oh-ho, the es-press-o,
Grande, iced or hot;
You’ll want to stay up late,
So add an extra shot!

It’s a soggy, foggy Christmas,
But we’re all still full of cheer.
Oh hot doggy,
It’s a soggy, foggy Christmas this year!

Merry Christmas!
