Allan Sherman's Twelve Days of Christmas

Written by: Robert Pettit

The late Allan Sherman conveyed a Christmas wish, even though by birth, the man was Jewish. Before the Christmas season of 1963, he released another nice little ditty. I had to consider this one “cute” if not “pretty”. This late creative genius never ceased to amaze. He was aware the holiday season lasts for twelve days. Allan recorded a “Twelve Days of Christmas” parody. This helped to boost his burgeoning popularity. Even though Mr. Sherman is now gone, his recordings will be carried on and on. Robert Pettit
