This photo depicts the back end of a Trabant. Check the forlorn demeanor of the horse and dog.

“The Trabants, or Trabis for short, were in production in the German Democratic Republic without any significant change for more than three decades. And although the last new Trabi hit the roads in 1991, the vehicle — which turns 50 this year — has gained cult status in Germany.”

Christmas Songs, Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen is a favourite of mine and his version of Santa Claus is coming to town exemplifies his wonderful spirit.

Bruce Springsteen Santa Claus is coming to town

Bruce Springsteen is an eternal favourite of mine and I may be biased but I think his version of Santa Claus is coming to town is about as good as it gets.

I also love Bruce’s version of Merry Christmas Baby. If like me, you also enjoy Bruce Springsteen’s work, then sit back and enjoy these 2 Christmas favourites.

See the original story of Festivus below, Where Frank Costanza recounts the origins of Festivus

Frank Costanza: Many Christmases ago, I went to buy a doll for my son. I reached for the last one they had, but so did another man. As I rained blows upon him, I realized there had to be another way.

Cosmo Kramer: What happened to the doll?

Frank Costanza: It was destroyed. But out of that a new holiday was born… a Festivus for the rest of us!

Cosmo Kramer: That must have been some kind of doll.

Frank Costanza: She was.
