Notes

  • Alice's pictures from the evening: (Flickr link)
  • Jingle Bell Rock is, in JoCo's opinion, the worst Christmas song.
  • White Christmas is, again in JoCo's opinion, the perfect Christmas song.
  • John Roderick started reeling off the five savior babies, including Gordon, the savior baby of Manitoba.
  • This was the first time on the tour that they played the entire "One Christmas at a Time" album, and the first time that they played "Christmas with You Is the Best".
