I learned this year, after hearing the song for many years, that "Run Rudolph Run" was NOT written by Chuck. It was co-written by Johnny Marks!

Thanks for pluggin' the TW board back in, Jeff Moore!

The TV show with Jester Hairston was "Amen", which also starred Sherman Hemsley.
  Mon. 12/24/18 12:06pm I'm a Soalin' Man:

It looks like Portugal and the Philippines maintain a Halloween, All Saints' Day, and All Souls' Day tradition of baking small round cakes that dates back to medieval Britain. Paul Stookey had a hand in slightly modifying a traditional song, and tagging a Christmas line at the end.
