BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN ... PASSAIC, NJ ... 1978 ... IN GLORIOUS BLACK AND WHITE ... 'SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN'

I actually saw Bruce Springsteen twice myself around this time and a little earlier.

Check it out:

Ya better be good for goodness sake!



I spent part of the afternoon with my three-year old niece, telling her stories about Christmases past, about a Calvin and Hobbes Christmas card I received, and especially how a little mouse used to watch over me to see if I had been naughty or nice and report back to Santa.

She was fascinated and somewhat astounded (you see, she never hears the things she hears from her Uncle Ed).

I also told her the Story of Heidi, and how the housekeeper broke her little snow globe (like hers), and then read Little Red Riding Hood and half of The Ugly Duckling before she finally passed out and took her nap.

I've never a bad Christmas. There's always something good and heartwarming to hold onto, no matter what's happening to you, if you look for it, and even though it might take years to realize.

I've been blessed.
