My Favorite Christmas Songs…The Friends Version Vol. XIX

6 days until Christmas!!! Can you believe it! Is anyone holding out for a White Christmas? I certainly am! The local weather forecast is calling for some some rain and snow on Christmas Eve.

Today’s song was suggested by Karen Martin. The girl to the right was the singer of today’s song. She’s an Oklahoma City native. Can anyone name her?

Her name is Gayla Peevey and she sang the 1953 Christmas song, “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas“. As it turns out, Peevey actually received a hippopotamus for Christmas that year and donated it to the Oklahoma City Zoo. The hippo went to to live for 50 years.

Enjoy your Monday!
