    Haha. Of course you do. Twitter is funny with people posting about it. I usually bawl for the first ten minutes, and then the last ten. icon_wink.gif

    After last winter I'm more like "Melt, you bitch."

    Suzy Snowflake and Hardrock, Coco, and Joe make me smile, but tears for any Christmas song, especially a secular one? Hell no! The second movement to Prokofieff's Second Violin Concerto, however, ...

    Oh yeah, Prancer tugs at my heart strings, especially since I grew up close to Three Oaks, MI, where it was filmed. A neat little town!

    The last Xmas cartoon I watched was 'Twas The Night Before Christmas. I remember the smart mouse with glasses accused Santa of being a fraud so Santa stopped coming.

    I laughed!

    No, but I do have to hold back a sniffle when watching the ice cubes melt in my drink.

    icon_neutral.gif I don't think so, but the last time I saw it was back when there were three channels and I had to climb up a tall pine tree to adjust the antenna between storms, because I was the only one skinny enough to do it. So yeah, there may have been some tears, or at least skinned palms and knees, involved.

    Before it was a US animated TV special it was a 1950 recording. I listened to the Gene Autry version at home, on a 78 rpm single, before LPs became widespread for home use.

    My grandmother also had it in piano sheet music form, that she played & sang to me. And which she taught me to play myself, one of my earliest keyboard numbers, a very simple piece.

    So while I don't care if Frosty himself melts or gets preserved in the deep freeze until next winter, I do have some fond family memories of that silly ditty. I never watched the 1969 TV special, already serving in the US Army, and have never watched it subsequently.

    That sounds like a great memory!

    I have a preternatural long-term memory. Offset by a very defective short-term memory, a consequence of my many head traumas.

    I can remember the inside of my baby carriage, and my pacifiers and little toys. I also remember my baby portrait taken at home when I was 10 months. Mainly I suppose because the photographer set up all his floodlights & reflectors, as I was posed standing against the piano bench. And being curious, when he turned the bulbs off I toddled over and put my finger on one, getting burned. My curiosity has been getting me burned ever since. LOL!

    I remember learning to walk steadily outside on the lawn when I was 12 months, wearing a blue searsucker summer jumper. And my newborn sister being brought home from the hospital when I wasn't quite 3. I recall riding my tricycle from the same period, and later learning to ride a 2-wheeler at 5, but past that age I don't consider my memory remarkable. I think everyone can do that.

    WOW, that is one remarkable brain right there! I remember learning in college that the majority of people only have long term, or permanent memory starting around 4-5 years old. This has also been the excuse every parent has told every child in our family for years as to why they won't take us to Disneworld until we are past 5! Lol, ( though ofcourse the " majority " part comes with some exceptions). Well I'm guessing your memory type is one of them. Another type, mmm I forget the name of it, but I know is sometimes called total, or perfect recall. Those individuals can remember details, on every single date they've lived through. There's a pretty, older, red haired actress that has it. Marylou Henner I believe is her name? Im pretty sure the name is correct, but not sure if I spelled it correctly. Then again I am using my IPad, & it doesn't let me indent, or edit most posts, ugh. Anyway, do you maybe have that same ability as she does? I have great long term memory for random things, but it doesn't seem to work for important things like, work, school, etc...

    The only song from a holiday show, (in that Frosty The Snowman genre), that chokes me up a bit is, "I believe in Santa Claus" from my favourite holiday show; The Year Without A Santa Claus"

    Absolutely love Heat Mizer!! icon_cool.gif
    (Favourite holiday character ever!)

    It depends. I have a good visual memory for movies, and I can recall dialogue I haven't heard in years. I do that here on RJ all the time, to highlight something. Most of the time I'm not relying on Internet research, it's coming directly from my memory.

    Same with music. I remember stuff I haven't heard in years almost note for note. Happened in the car the other day with the satellite radio. I was faux-conducting a symphony perfectly as we drove, which is quite a lot of notes, that I hadn't heard in about 15 years. I joked with my husband that the world lost a great conductor when I turned away from music. icon_rolleyes.gif

    LOL! Well, memory is a funny thing. But my short-term memory is a disaster, and most times I can't remember what I had for breakfast. Nor what I'm supposed to do today or tomorrow, which is why I rely so much on my smartphone's calendar app. If my own memory won't work, I'll create extra-somatic memory prompts to help me.

    no, but i cry out of hopelessness when I read most of the thread titles on RJ (not this one though).
