It’s a Jolly Holiday With Mary

Two Marys, two red coats and an afternoon downtown to create a Christmas greeting for Ben and all of you. Between the two songs I used– Mary’s Poppin’s ‘Jolly Holiday’ and ‘Extraordinary Merry Christmas’ from Glee– they sing Mary or Merry at least a hundred times.

Now tell me, should we send it to Ben? Will it make him feel extraordinarily homesick or extraordinarily loved?

p.s. Most Marys are annoyed by the song ‘Mary, Mary Quite Contrary’ but they are just fine if you sing ‘Jolly Holiday.”

    Absolutely darling! Those two Marys together have such beautiful synergy. Loved it all. Might make Ben want to come running home… for a split second or two. 😉 xoxo
