Throughout history, Westminster and Carroll County have been
filled with the spirit of the season for the Christmas holidays. No Grinches here.
I hope that by now you are putting the final touches on your
Christmas decorations and wrapping presents with some soothing heavy metal
Christmas music on in the background.
Actually, some of my all-time Christmas favorites include
"The Chipmunk Song" sung by Alvin and the Chipmunks in 1958 and
"I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" written by John Rox and
performed by Gayla Peevey, 10 years old at the time, in 1953.
Another classic that comes to mind is a little more offbeat,
"I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" by Tommie Connor. He was only 13
years old when it was recorded in 1952. The song was actually banned by the
Catholic Church in several cities.
Yes, of course, I believe in Santa Claus.
I believe because Dolly Pardon and local community leader Mary
Bostwick Shellman have told me that Santa exists...

tell you why I do… I believe that dreams and plans and wishes can come true. I
believe in miracles I believe in magic too. I believe in Santa Claus and I
believe in you. I believe in family in country and in smiles. I believe in turning
negatives to positives in life…”
