Merry 12th day of Christmas with tinsel tunes from Tulsa

The twelve days of Christmas end today, and I wish our Christmas weather would end with it, but no such luck.  Below-zero chill factors, a few inches of snow, and 0 degree overnight highs here in the country (must remember to keep small trickle of water running), and nothing fit for humans until our Sunday high of 28.  But there are others getting it a lot worse, so I can't complain.  I will, anyway.

I think I'm justified in calling this single "obscure."  "Nelson Pendergrass" + "Christy the Christmas Tree" gets a single Google match--a discography (minus dates) of Oklahoma record labels, including this one (Pride).  It appears that Pendergrass did one other Pride single--“Cute Little Checker Girl/Tomorrow Is Her Birthday."  Now you know all I know.  About this topic, I mean.

Pleasant sides, sounding very much like small local label efforts (why would that be, I wonder?), and destined not to become internet classics.  But they make for a nice and quiet farewell to Christmas 2017, even if the weather ain't following suit.
