--includes this image and poem
...and for those that think Santa is DEAD...look up in the air...it's a bird...it's a plane...it's SUPER CLAUS...
Tips for using the links in the poem:
I fixed some broken links.
Some are links to info rather that song links.
Several links go to this "RELISTEN TO THE GRATEFUL DEAD" site. To find the song Mickey has chosen, just look around...like you are trying to find your lost friends at a concert.

'Twas the night before Christmas, we all sat in the den, Cornell 77' playing again and again. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Stephen soon would be there.
The Menorah burns bright with 8 candles of light. We think you'll enjoy this One More Saturday Night. Stories of Abraham and Issac never get old. Neither does this 1989 Greatest Story Ever Told
Alpine Valley 89' on the lawn arose such a clatter, When Sugaree is playing, nothings a matter. Away to the rail - a spot not to lose, Close as we can, 78' Birmingham, New Minglewood Blues.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen Rain and Snow, This Morning Dew from Augusta warms us up with a glow. When, Me and My Uncle - so lively and merry, Discovered "Accidentally Like A Martyr" - some beautiful rare Jerry.
In Oakland 86' to our grateful eyes did appear, Jerry back on stage after almost a year; Tiger in hand with his band in the West, The boys were together, loving Pearly Baker (1) the best.
At the Fillmore East 1970 the Dire Wolf runs wild, Plus a 27 minute Dark Star even Ebenezer had smiled. Beacon Theatre 76' - an incredible show, Jerry’s pure magic on this Row Jimmy Row.
Dead & Company provides us with good times aplenty, Help/Slip/Franklin's just perfect from the hands of Chimenti. Fox Theater 77' - an incredible show, Jerry shreds hard on a Ramble On Rose!
The Warlocks, The Grateful Dead, & now Dead & Co, Weir everywhere you know, on the bus we shall go. 50+ years of music, always taking us higher, New Years 1990, dancing with fire.
So many shows in our hearts and our minds, Inspiring us to always Be Kind; The Music Never Stopped and there's no end in sight, Happy Holidays to all, and to all a good-night!
(1) "Pearly Baker" is part of the "Wharf Rat" lyrics. Here's an historical article that discusses Pearly and another character in this tale: August West.
