I know.  It’s silly, and it’s for kids, but this has always been a favorite Christmas song of mine.  It sticks in your head, and it makes you smile.  Most of us have those happy childhood memories when we opened our eyes and saw our own “Hippo Hero” standing there.  Christmas morning was a very magical time back when we all believed in Santa Claus, before responsibilities and adulthood arrived, back when we all asked for that Red Ryder BB Gun, and it somehow magically appeared under our Christmas trees.  I miss those days.
