December Calendar and Free Christmas Memory Card Matching Game

Merry Christmas and here are a couple of gifts to download!

 My calendar this month is a song set to the old tune True Love.  When I started looking for an example of the tune, I discovered Pink has a song of the same title but it's not the same song.  If you have ever seen the old movie "High Society" with Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly they sing a beautiful duet of the song.  Here is an instrumental version that gives you some of the tune in the sample.  My thoughts on this song are to take some of the emphasis off of getting and put a little more on giving. Use the lines to incorporate the movement of giving and getting gifts and then dance around the Christmas tree.  This would also make a great short song for a preschool Christmas program.  You can use the instrumental mp3 below for accompaniment.
