Perfect day

This I know is the post you’ve all been waiting for; the now annual Christmas music video starring the creme of dad bloggers.  After last years phenomenal success of the 12 dads of christmas it took very little persuading to get those fine fellows singing again and I hope you will enjoy this years song choice.

Us dad’s are simple folk, we don’t need big trips out or expensive activities with our children, a perfect day can be as simple as a trip to the park. At this time of the year I love nothing more than a good tramp through the forest on a dog walk together before heading home for hot chocolate and a movie.

This song I think captures that feeling and is also a (somewhat interesting) tribute to Lou Reed who passed away on 27th October this year.

So without further ado I give you Perfect Day by The Backstreet Dads

The stars this year are:

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.
