    I remember this “Mary Christmas” song from when I was a kid. Maybe I have the wrong song title. First line of the song…

    You see there was an eskimo, named Mary Christmas, that lived next door to Santa’s house when Santa’s elves were boys and as they grew she’s who taught them to make toys.
