Six Christmases: It's 2013 and Christmas isn't over yet...

We're officially one week into the New Year, but Christmas isn't quite finished. My Mom had mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I should write something about "Six Christmases," and while I didn't think I would, here I am doing it in January. For my little ones, Holiday 2012 brought Six Christmases. We've got five down and one to go. This blog entry is geared largely for our family to get a look at our December.

FREE Holiday Download: Nick Cope - "Snowman Kind of Day"

While we just broke the record for "days without significant snowfall" here in the Chicago area (281 days and counting for those that care), it's technically Snowman Season for a lot of folks with plenty of fresh, white powder on the ground. As a celebration of the season, Oxford, UK-based children's performer NICK COPE has released a new Holiday song called "Snowman Kind of Day." It's a great new tune for the family, and he's offering it up for a free download!

Holiday Music: DROPKICK MURPHYS release "The Season's Upon Us" video...

This is one of those that was a toss-up as to where to file it here on The Rock Father... not really "music for kids," but not just "for grownups" either. Since it's more of a track for rockin' families in general, I'm just putting the new video from the DROPKICK MURPHYS here in my blog. In fact, I think that going forward, any holiday music that's not specifically kid-centric will go in my blog instead of "news." You could say it's some "Housekeeping" in a way. In terms of the holidays, "The Season's Upon Us," and that just so happens to be the name of the DROPKICK MURPHYS' new single and video. Check it out!

Inside each package is a collection of fun activities and souvenirs.
