For may years WPIX in New York City aired their annual Yule Log starting on Christmas Eve and continuing into Christmas Day. It consisted of footage of a crackling fire in a living room fireplace and was accompanied by Christmas music simulcast from WPIX-FM. On this Christmas, I’d like to share this tradition with you. May you and yours have a very Merry Christmas.

This is from the DVD The Best of the Andy Williams Christmas Shows and features commentary from Donny Osmond and from Andy himself.

Here’s a 1951 Castle Films presentation of Howdy Doody’s Christmas starring Buffalo Bob Smith as himself and as Howdy’s voice, a pre-Captain Kagaroo Bob Keeshan as Clarabell the Clown and Dayton Allen as Ugly Sam, who has mistaken Santa Claus (actor unknown) for a wanted bandit.

Here is an unusual 1947 trailer for Miracle on 34th Street….it’s unusual because it does not include any scenes from the film, except for brief moments from the opening and closing. Instead of the stars of the film – Maureen O’Hara, John Payne, Edmund Gwenn and Natalie Wood – it features Rex Harrison, Ann Baxter, Peggy Ann Garner and Dick Haymes.

And here is a colorized trailer that does feature the film’s stars.
