I believe in Santa Claus by Kevin Earl Dayhoff


December 9, 2016

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...



‘Kenny & Dolly: A Christmas to Remember’, Published
November 15, 1984 / Last Updated August 23, 2015: ‘Kenny & Dolly –
Christmas To Remember’ is a network television Christmas special inspired by
their popular album, ‘Once Upon a Christmas’

In 1984, Dolly Parton starred alongside of Kenny Rogers in
“Kenny & Dolly: A Christmas To Remember,” a network television special
inspired by “Once Upon A Christmas,” a popular Christmas album recorded by
Dolly and Kenny Rogers.

Parton told the world that she believes in Santa Claus on
December 2, 1984 when she sang “I Believe in Santa Claus” with Kenny Rogers in
a Christmas special on CBS, “Kenny & Dolly – Christmas To Remember.”
According to her website, dollyparton.com, the Christmas special show was
“inspired by their popular album, ‘Once Upon a Christmas.’” http://dollyparton.com/life-and-career/movies-television/christmas-to-remember/463 



‘Kenny & Dolly’ sang, “… I believe in Santa Claus I'll
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…”
