I went back to my archives to find a Christmasy image to share this week because even though I’ve been taking photos this month none are really Christmasy- back in 2010 on my way out of town for a photo shoot a friend and I stopped downtown to catch a little bit of the Christmas Parade and who should strut by? Elvis!
I can’t remember which Christmas song he was singing. I wish I had made some notes.
So, I went to YouTube to see if anyone had posted the parade and caught him crooning this number…well someone did post about him at the Parade! Turns out he’s Rick Torres a popular Elvis impersonator here in the Bay Area and he won the 2010 Holiday Day Parade trophy that year! Man, I love YouTube!
Since Elvis wasn’t singing in that clip so here’s some Top Christmas Songs sung by Elvis to help us keep the spirit of the season Merry and Bright.
From my house to yours, Wishing all of you that celebrate it a Rockin Merry Christmas!

Your post of Elvis reminded me of a good friend of mine who passed away in August this year. She adored Elvis. Her husband played several Elvis songs at her funeral. I think “Blue Christmas” is my favorite of his Christmas songs… how about you, do you have a favorite, Deborah? 🎅💕🎶
I don’t have a favorite, but I like a lot of them.
That’s nice that every time you hear an Elvis song or see an impersonator you’ll be reminded of your friend. xx
Merry Christmas, Deborah, enjoy the holidays!
Thank you so much Donna! I hope you have a lovely Holiday too! ❤🎅🎄
Thanks, Deborah! Elvis rocks.
All the best for the holidays Deborah!
Thank you Belinda! Happy Holidays to you too!
So fun! Great post!
Thank you so much KK!
You are welcome! I forgot to mention that I am also just trying to figure out what to wear. We had temperatures in the high eighties for a lot of the Fall. Yikes! Summer right to winter!
That definitely adds some pop to the holidays!! Thanks for sharing Deborah. I hope that you and your family have a very Merry Christmas!! xx
Thank you so much Amy! I wish the same for you and your family! Merry Christmas!! xx
What a fun post and images, Deborah! I’m with you about Youtube.
Wishing you and yours a magical Christmas. And in return for your video — more Elvis Christmas… 😀
Ah, thank you for that link! I’m listening to them now. xx
I hope you have a magical Christmas too! I know exciting things, and changes are coming your way. 2019 promises to be a very good year!
The truly hard part is still to come — physically getting there. I haven’t quite figured that out. But I’ve signed and notarized all the papers. Now if UPS can get them across the country in this weather! For the moment I still have to call it my “Vacation” home, but I hope to live there before much longer. Thanks for all your support, encouragement, and good wishes, Deborah. Hugs on reindeer hooves!
I feel ya! We bought another house a year ago this month and have longed to get there. 2019 is shaping up to the be year we do it. Fingers and prayers we both do!
Love Elvis at Christmas most of all. 😊
Melekalikimaka, Deborah! (Merry Christmas in Hawaiian).
Gordon, I love this Hawaiian saying!! I have two photographer friends in Hawaii that say this to me every year and back at them.
I have goosebumps now that you have wished me a Merry Christmas in Hawaiian too! THANK YOU!
And now the song is in my head!
Mahalo (thanks) for the memories. Bing Crosby’s song goes way back.
One of my favorites too.
So much fun! Elvis at his best!
Thank you so much Lynn! It was a fun parade!
Looks like it was!
Excellent, Deborah. Merry Christmas to you.
Thank you so much John! Merry Christmas to you too!
Great holiday photo, Deborah! And that’s so cool that your research on the singer was fruitful. Thanks for the tunes. I was actually thinking about Elvis Christmas songs while listening to Bing Crosby at a coffee shop when I saw your post. So timely! Have a wonderful holiday! 🙂 ❤
That’s amazing that you were thinking of Elvis songs recently!
I hope you have a wonderful Holiday and do really really well on the Final!
Have a great holiday!
Thank you Brian! I hope you and yours do too!
But of course! Rick! 🙂 He has the (mutton) chops. I wish you and your loved ones a great christmas Deborah and a grand final of this year.
Thank you so much Peter! I wish the same for you and yours!
That’s a pretty darn good looking Elvis. 🙂 Merry Christmas to you, and I hope that grandson of yours gets a huge bag from Santa. 🙂
Thank you so much Judy! I know he’s hoping for the same thing. Merry Christmas to you and yours! xx
Thank you so much, and a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and yours, too,
Thank you so much Pit!
Elvis had so many good Christmas songs! Great photo for the season.
Thank you Dan! He did didn’t he! More than I remember too.
