Santa Claus Express (right-click on the file for download)
So the other night I was working on a Bible study series for the students while listening to “Christmas Classics” on Pandora. Along came this song. I thought that is a neat tune. I quickly recalled that as a child the start of the Christmas season began with waiting on Santa to arrive at the local mall on a train. So with that memory I thought this song should be included
This song was performed by Henry Hall and the BBC Dance Orchestra in the late 1930’s. Henry was born in 1898 and died in 1989. When he formed this dance group in the 30’s is when he his career really began to take off. It was during War Times that a this song brought excitement and energy to children of all ages.
