The 12 Days of Christmas: Bob and Doug McKenzie

Hanna and I were waiting in the car for Laura to finish up basketball practice one particularly frigid December night four years ago when I popped in an Awesome 80s Christmas CD (doubtless acquired during a post-holiday clearance sale the year before) to try to keep our minds off of our frozen toes. The CD contained the expected Wham!, Bangles, New Kids on the Block, Pat Benatar – plus this delightful version of “The 12 Days of Christmas” by Bob and Doug McKenzie.

Two highlights from this selection: the always hysterical Rick Moranis as Bob, and “tuque” – a particularly handy Scrabble word – used in context.
