Sharon from San Fernando ValleyI think I might have been 6 months or a year ahead of Jimmy Boyd at Van Nuys High School. I graduated with the class of The Avalon’s, Summer, 1956. I remember Jimmy very well. During the period between approximately 1954 - 1956, we also had other well-known kids as students at Van Nuys High School. I remember Natalie Wood, Don Drysdale, Diane Baker. I think Robert Redford May have graduated a little ahead of me. There were more, however, I cannot recall the names. SharonTerri from Cape May County, Nj, NjI heard this (Jimmy Boyd) version (I believe it"s the original version) on my way home from work tonight and was so excited! I cannot remember the last time I heard it. My dad used to sing this song to me when I was a little girl, and it is still one of my favorite memories. This is the version that I remember hearing on the radio back then, and they never play this one ... although there are many more recent versions, none of them can compare to this one and the memories it brings back.Bob from Los Angeles, CaI knew Jimmy at Van Nuys High School and took a ride in his new T-Bird. Really nice guy. Greetings from Tom and Pete and Piggy. I would love to know where he is now. Bob in Studio CityJulie from Oundle, EnglandI listened to this song over and over when I was a child i just adore it and the memories it evokes. Does anyone remember the B side?
