Christmas Day 2012

Many Americans may not know of Penelope Keith but for many years our British and Australian cousins have known her as one of the England's most famous actors – yes, she is of our generation.

You can read a bare bones biography about her at Wikipedia, but today we are concerned only with her rendition of The 12 Days of Christmas or, as it is titled in this case, Yet Another Partridge in a Pear Tree.

When you hear this you will wonder how you ever got through the Christmas holiday without it.

No video, just audio, and I promise it is worth every minute. Happy Christmas to everyone and enjoy.

Penelope Keith - And Yet Another Partridge in a Pear Tree

(If you have technical difficulties with the audio here, give it a try at this website (scroll down). And you will find the entire lyric here, but it's much more fun to listen to Penelope.)

Just the best of many variations!

Happy Winterfest, Ronnie, and thanks for your always well researched and entertaining blog!

Love Penelope Keith, so thanks for posting this! Best wishes for a joyful holiday season.

Delightful ... thank you!

Wonderful! No one does a snooty English accent better!

Ronni:
Happy solstice! The Penelope Keith audio was delightful! You should run it every year! But not 12 times; once will suffice!
Cheers!
Marc

Thank you for introducing us to her. Lovely.

A belated comment and a belated merry christmas etc, but I listened to Penelope. She is fantastic isn't she. I grew up watching her in The Good Life and To the Manor Born. She's perfect for this. Thank you.
