Must Be Santa: a Flannel Friday Extravaganza Presentation

Must Be Santa: a Flannel Friday Extravaganza Presentation

I just learned that Must Be Santa was originally covered by Mitch Miller, which means it’s older than I thought it to be. I use the Raffi version found on Singable Songs for the Very Young but apparently Bob Dylan has covered it as well. If you are unfamiliar with it, this is a call and response song; the singer/leader sings a question and the chorus answers.

(PS:I made this flannel, a rarity. My favorite parts? The beard and I used a soft, red fleece for the hat and suit … it’s yummy to feel!)

Let’s Begin:

Who's got a ...
