'Tis the Season to drink egg nog, decorate the tree, and sing our favorite Christmas songs. UCLA Library Special Collections Sheet Music Collection has all of your favorites, but have you heard these other songs that for some reason aren’t being played on the radio? Songs like, The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot, c. 1937, about an orphan boy who doesn’t get any Christmas presents? Or, Ding a Ling the Christmas Bell about a broken bell that ends up ringing loudly so Santa can find the town in a terrible snow storm?And don’t forget, Ma! My Toys Are Broken, c. 1951, about a fun-loving dad who breaks all of his kid’s presents when playing with them himself! Check them out and find a new favorite of your own!
