#CC17: 10 Days to Christmas

If “events” are what a prime minister most fears, then the same must surely be true of bloggers.

For I had happily set up the next couple of days’ Countdown to Christmas posts ready to auto-publish on the given dates, knowing that my time at home would be somewhat limited.

And then, and then, comes the news that Fox is to sell its film and TV empire to Disney and suddenly the traditional mouse-inspired installment I had planned for tomorrow made much more topical sense today.

So please do enjoy the dulcet tones of Donald Duck, Winnie the Pooh, Lumiere, Mickey Mouse and more as they take you through some of your festive favourites – all performed by the incredible Brian Hull.

#CC16: 8 Days to Christmas

The ever-annoying Disney hit Frozen has featured on my Countdown to Christmas before, specifically in 2014 following my most recent visit to Walt Disney World in Florida.

Hold on to your excitement, though, because for today’s Countdown to Christmas, Frozen is going Catalan!

Barcelonina Gisela performed the Catalan versions of the Frozen soundtrack and is seen here performing with Amarcord on the TV3 singing competition Oh Happy Day – their version of the American Clash of the Choirs, which strangely never made it to the UK.

I’m sure most of you have probably heard the English version, so I won’t insult your intelligence by providing a translation here – just enjoy the performance without the words “let”, “it” or “go” being uttered once!
