Santa Baby” was originally recorded by Eartha Kitt with Henri René and his orchestra in New York City, in July, 1953. It was released by RCA Victor Records as catalog number 20-5502 (in the USA),[2] and by EMI on the His Master’s Voice label as catalog number B 10728. The song was a huge hit for Kitt, and she later said that it was one of her favorite songs to record; she reprised it in the 1954 film New Faces. Kitt re-recorded the sing for Kapp Records in 1963, using a more uptempo arrangement (Madonna‘s popular rendition for the 1987 charity album A Very Special Christmas was based on this latter version). In 1954, Kitt recorded a new version of the song with new lyrics titled “This Year’s Santa Baby”, to no commercial success. Writers listed did not change.

The song is heard in the films Driving Miss Daisy (1989), Elf (2003), and Boynton Beach Club (2005).

    Hmmmmmm….what happened to change his stance of defiance?

    Oh, hey, LATimes noticed that Rep. Hunter is suddenly scheduled to change his not guilty plea. Thus far he has been absolutely defiant, vowing to fight this to the bitter end.— Gabriel Malor (@gabrielmalor) December 2, 2019

    Melania Trump is a racist birther who lied on her visa application, got an Einstein visa with no demonstration of any talent, chain migrated her parents based on those lies (what happened with that press conference) & lied about graduating from college.— KD (@Fly_Sistah) November 27, 2019

  3. I’m going to get started on my tree a little at a time. It’ll probably take me 2 days to finish.

      I love how much you love Christmas. Cheers up my mood :)

      • I look forward to celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas with my family. I try to make it a feast. I want them to enjoy plenty of food, drinks and have lots of fun exchanges gifts and we have our ritual of stuffing the stockings with lottery tickets. LOL

        For a long time, after my father died, I didn’t like Christmas anymore. I remember this one year, it was Christmas Eve and I think I was 13 yrs old. My two older sisters both had dates that night. My oldest sister was dating the guy she would marry and they set up a blind date for my other sister. My mother and brother had gone somewhere, probably to a church service. But I’m standing at the front door saying good-bye to my sisters and these two guys and then I was alone and it was Christmas Eve. I think that is the most alone I ever felt in my entire life.

        However, if I could re-live one Christmas from my whole life it would be that one. It made me resilient, it was a moment of truth.

        Years later I decided I would cook all day on Thanksgiving and Christmas. It keeps the demons away. And the food is good.

      • Liza, I’m so sorry. I know that feeling of pain. I lost my mother on November 29th 2002. Cooking Christmas dinner was the hardest thing. When I finished making the dressing I went to lay down because I was so depressed. My mama was gone and my soul was crushed. 😭😭😭

    If the NYT story on the Justice dept IG report is true the ArtorneyGeneral must resign or be removed Barr sat before the Senate and said there was evidence of spying by the FBI. He knew that to be a false statement but said it to help Trump’s conspiracy theory. Time to go Barr.
