I have to text Mrs. Claus. Oh, you want to know

Coming up next… ‘Twas the Night Before Christms
like you’ve never seen it. With me,
Bob Schmidt And later,
Doug Mattocks Strums the classic
O Holy Night
on his 5-string banjo. ♪
[Oh Christmas Tree]
♪ Welcome back to our
Chrismas Special [announcer]
I’d like to tell you a tale
deep in the woods. On the most magical
night of them all. ♪ [footsteps in snow] ♪ ‘Twas the night before
when all through the house Not a creature was stirring,
not even a mouse. The stockings were hung
by the chimney with care, In hopes that Saint Nicholas
soon would be there. The children were nestled
all snug in their beds, While visions of sugar-plums
danced in their heads. And mamma in her ‘kerchief,
and I in my cap, Had just settled our brains
for a long winter nap. [fire crackling] [winter wind] When out on the lawn
there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the bed
to see what was the matter. [sound of window opening] Away to the window
I flew like a flash, Tore open the shutters
and threw up the sash. The moon on the breast
of the new-fallen snow Gave the lustre of
mid-day to objects below. When, what to my
wondering eyes should appear, But a miniature sleigh,
and eight tiny reindeer. ♪ With a little old driver,
so lively and quick, I knew in a moment
it must be St Nick. More rapid than eagles
his coursers they came, And he whistled,
and shouted,
and called them by name! “Now, Dasher!
now, Dancer!
now, Prancer and Vixen! On, Comet! On, Cupid!
on, Donner and Blitzen! To the top of the porch!
to the top of the wall! Now dash away!
Dash away!
Dash away all!” [♪music builds♪] As dry leaves that before
the wild hurricane fly, When they meet with an
obstacle, mount to the sky. So up to the house-top
the coursers they flew, With the sleigh full of toys,
and Saint Nicholas too. And then, in a twinkling,
I heard on the roof The prancing and
pawing of each little hoof. As I drew in my head,
and was turning around, Down the chimney
St Nicholas came with a bound. [twinkling bells] He was dressed all in fur,
from his head to his foot, And his clothes were all
tarnished with ashes and soot. A bundle of toys
he had flung on his back, And he looked like a peddler,
just opening his pack. His eyes-how they twinkled!
his dimples how merry! His cheeks were like roses,
his nose like a cherry! His droll little mouth
was drawn up like a bow, And the beard of his chin
was as white as the snow. The stump of a pipe
he held tight in his teeth, And the smoke it encircled
his head like a wreath. He had a broad face
and a little round belly, That shook when he laughed,
like a bowlful of jelly! He was chubby and plump,
a right jolly old elf, And I laughed when I saw him,
in spite of myself! A wink of his eye
and a twist of his head, Soon gave me to know
I had nothing to dread. He spoke not a word,
but went straight to his work, And filled all the stockings,
then turned with a jerk. And laying his finger
aside of his nose, And giving a nod,
up the chimney he rose! ♪ He sprang to his sleigh,
to his team gave a whistle, And away they all flew
like the down of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim,
as he drove out of sight, “Merry Christmas to all,
and to all a good-night!” ♪ [announcer]
Now jump in your sleigh and
head up the hills toward the North Pole, where Santa is M.I.A. [foot tapping] [screams] You’re a
horrible Santa! You’re supposed to be
full of holiday joy and cheer. I’m taking [beep] liberties. This is empty? The kids need
presents for Christmas. Oh you want
[beep] presents? Okay. All Right.
How ’bout … Here’s some good presents. Life lessons!
Huh? Just don’t be a
[beep] That’s just a general
rule. [beep] How ’bout you don’t
judge people by the way
they look or the color
of their hair or their sexual orientation? It’s a free [beep] world
okay? Maybe not.
But it’s a… [slap] Just nice. Be nice. [beep] What the [beep]
are you doing? [laughs]
am texting
Mrs. Claus You are a
horrendous Santa. You are
scarcastic, bitter, angry, lonely,
pitiful, You have to be good!
A good Santa!
[sigh] We’ll practice.
Now… Sit. Sit! [crunching bones] Ow!
My [bleep] gout! Does he really need to
[bleep] sit here? Yes. You are a boy
at a mall seeing Santa Now, tell him
what you would like
for Christmas. I want a
toy cart and a race car and some wooden blocks [smack]
No. You know what you’re
gonna [beep] get? You’re gonna get some…
here’s some integrity. Yeah.
Chew on that. How ’bout some
common decency? Yeah,
It tastes good doesn’t it? How about some
[beep] love for
your [beep] fellow man? You can’t play
with any of those! You know what? You’re a
[beep] [beep] [beep}
materialistic little [beep]! All Right.
That’s all fine. But, the key about
Santa is you have to
smile. All right?
Now… [skin stretching] [grunting] Oww [beep]
You’re worse than
my ex-wives! You’re not trying!
Just smile! You want me to smile? Give me some
[beep] whiskey
that will make me smile! Did you just fart? ♪ [announcer]

2016… A breathtaking performance
of O Holy Night By classic banjo player
Doug Mattocks And…
There’s a rumor up North. Welcome back. Few modern performers
understand the subtle
intricacies of the banjo the way that virtuoso
Doug Mattocks does. By all accounts he’s
one of the best banjo
players alive. You may be more
accustomed to the
four string variety, but you’ll notice the fifth
string on Doug’s banjo
in this classic performance. [♪O Holy Night

Christmas classic that deserves to be revisited. This time Jon England performs on a grand piano. ♪

is soothing on Christmas. Unless of course, you’re
an elf at the North Pole
texting on your cell phone. ♪
[footsteps] You’re still Santa? You’re
[beep] right
I am! I’m picking up
all of your work
back at the shop! Did you get
my text message? No.
I’m an elf.
I don’t have a cell phone. You’re fired. He’s back! He’s…
he’s really back? Yes.
Santa Claus
has returned! [stutters]
What about the
reindeer? They’re fine. The sleigh? He upgraded.
It’s an e-sleigh now. What about the toys? [in unison] He’s got toys. I like toys. Well,

cubicle. Merry Christmas… ♪ [announcer]
