Essential X-mas Music Track 6
"Feliz Navidad" by Jose Feliciano.
I first heard this song being played while Big Bird and a young girl figure skate in the Sesame Street Christmas special "Christmas Eve of Sesame Street". If you haven't seen it, I recommend checking it out. It's on youtube.
The other memory that sticks out from the special was the storyline of Bert and Ernie (which is actually an old story). Neither Bert nor Ernie have the money to buy gifts for each other this year (because neither one has jobs, because they are apparently 12-14 year old kids who live together). So Bert sells his paper clip collection in order to get Ernie a soap dish for Rubber Ducky. Of course, what Bert doesn't know is that Ernie sold Rubber Ducky to get a cigar box (?) for Bert's paper clip collection. With both of them dismayed, the now deceased Mr. Hooper, touched by the boys Christmas spirit, shows up to return both boys possessions to them. Then this heartwarming scene occurs. Enjoy!
