Thanks to the nativity scene, Santa’s engine room, Christmas dinner staples and many of the subjects mentioned in the ‘12 Days of Christmas’ is it any wonder that there are so many animals associated with Christmas. And this is reflected in the numerous animal Christmas songs that have been recorded down through the years. The most famous of these (especially in Italy) is the 1960 novelty hit ‘Dominick the Donkey’ from Lou Monte. Much truer to the original Christmas spirit is Johnny Cash’s ‘Who Kept The Sheep’, which he wrote with his wife June Carter, from his wonderful 1963 album ‘The Christmas Spirit’. Perhaps a little too safe for a playlist such as this but then you can always trust Eels frontman to take a slanted view on proceedings and on his ‘Christmas Is Going To The Dogs’ he bemoans the gutterisation of Christmas where ‘We'd rather have chew toys than yule logs’. Similarly bereft of sense is Stan & Doug’s ‘Christmas Goose (Snowbirds)’ which should have the whole family cackling at the slapstick antics of our fallen heroes.
