Each week, Editor-in-Chief Kevin Sessums shares his favorite things.
1. Judy Garland’s Christmas special—complete with commercials—from 1963. Also starring her children as well as Mel Torme and Jack Jones.
2. Lena Horne from a 1957 USO Christmas special wishes us a “Merry Christmas” then steers clear of caroling. It’s all about her right shoulder.
3. Three hot young men from the Broadway production of “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark”-Brandon Rubendall, Adam Roberts, and Jake Odmark, who did the arrangement of this version of ‘”O Holy Night.” Divine.
4. Nat King Cole’s take on “The Christmas Song.”
5. Mx. Justin Vivian Bond and Mr. Rufus Wainwright singing “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” Have yourself one.
