The 12 dads of Christmas

Every dad loves Christmas, what’s not to love about the opportunity to spend all day playing with toys and building lego broken only by the consumption of food. Plus of course cooking of the largest piece of meat money can buy. But most of all it is the perfect opportunity to belt out a good song or 2 at a carol concert, fuelled no doubt by some deceptively strong mulled wine.

This got me thinking and with a little gentle persuasion and just a tiny bit of blackmail I’ve persuaded 11 fine dad bloggers to join me in singing a Christmas Carol.

In our heads we are up there with the xFactors finest with a near certain Christmas no. 1 ahead of us. Alas this may be somewhere from the truth but what we lack in talent we certainly make up in enthusiasm.

So it is my great pleasure to give you the 12 dad’s of Christmas.

The stars of this fine production in order of appearance are below, they are all fine bloggers and gentlemen so I thoroughly recommend you check out their blogs and follow them on Twitter. Think of it as an early Christmas present.

    Well played sir! Nice to put faces and voices to you other chaps too. Are we too late to make Christmas number 1?

  • JohnC

    Bonkers! Thanks for getting me involved: great idea! (NTS: Next time, if ever there is one: shave!) Merry Christmas :)

    • Ben

      hehe no probs, I shall get my thinking cap on for the next time

  • reluctanthousedad

    That is a motley crew if ever I saw one. Fantastic piece of editing. If you release it quickly it can knock that X Factor fella off the number one spot. Merry Christmas to you and yours, Ben (and to all the other dads)

    • Ben

      Cheers Keith, has to be better than xfactor doesn’t it?

  • Richy Black

    Cheers for putting all this together! The look on Heather’s face when Daddy popped up on YouTube was priceless :)

    • Ben

      no worries, thanks for joining in glad I could make a little girl happy :)

  • Lou Rain

    Excellent work, I loved it. Merry Christmas!
