This Day in History: Little Drummer Boy and Grandma Got Ran Over By a Reindeer

On this day in history, November 30, 1977, David Bowie appeared on the Bing Crosby Christmas special. They sang Peace On Earth / Little Drummer Boy
. I remember this. Am I old or what? You can read the dialog of a short segment of the show here. And if you would like to see the two perform together:

Also on this day in 1979 the hit song, that of us long to hear during the holidays, Grandma Got Ran Over by a Reindeer
was released. By 1984 it hit the top of the charts and in 2000 a tv special was made of it. You can read the details here.

We can file these under useless peices of information that we will take to our grave. Enjoy!
