      Happy Christmas 2020!

      Here's wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy (COVID-Free) New Year for 2021 from the team here at skyuser.

      *****

      Well, who knew it! The world is still teetering on the edge of oblivion with this virus. However, as I post this, there are just 24 days to Christmas!

      Just for you all here I've updated my Christmas playlist recently. A few of the videos were banned from the UK and others had been removed. Feel free to play it, share it, enjoy listening or watching. The first part is based upon the album "The Best Christmas Album in the world...ever!", with some additional Christmas or Christmasy songs at the end.

      https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...qD9ca8hL3KyzzD

      Note: As this is a playlist, the link will open a new tab or your YouTube app. From there you should be able to choose whether to play the whole list, play at random or whatever you like.

      Additional tracks include Stille Nacht, Chipmunks Roasting On An Open Fire, Amazing Grace and Auld Lang Syne.

      A bit early but this year, especially, I think we can excuse that. I do have my decs up from yesterday. So a very merry Christmas and a Happy New vaccination and covid free Year for whenever it comes.

      Re: Happy Christmas 2020!

      Ok, earlier today I found out that YouTube was down the hard way. I was attempting to play the playlist on a neighbour's TV but for some reason, I couldn't get it to work.

      Anyway, YouTube is back up and the first track (John Lennon's Merry Xmas (the war is over)) video which I'd checked in November is now blocked. #**@$%!!! (please use your imagination, I'm not swearing. No really, I'm not swearing )

      So I've gone hunting and added another version. This doesn't have the original video that went with the song when it was first released, which is something I've attempted to do with all the videos. Instead, it's an animated slide show of stills and a few other "new" video clips. However, it is from the official John Lennon YouTube channel (at least that is what it says), which I hope is being run by his family.

      There are two other versions of the same song in the list, something I'm not happy with and could easily correct, which I'll leave for now. One is adult rated due to the content and doesn't always play on some devices, the other is a boring "single image" video, but at least it has the song.

      Hopefully, this will be the last update before the big day. I try to keep this list maintained so that anyone can enjoy listening to it.

      Have a great time and please stay safe.
