Have a Dairy, Merry Christmas!

I got bored one day last week while planting rye seed into a hay field. And as is the case when I get bored, my mind starts coming up with strange things. In this case, it was bending the words of "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas" into something dairy related.  I came up with a new version of the song pretty quickly, but decided to wait until this week to shoot some video and piece it all together.

What I didn't know at the time was that the Peterson Brothers in Kansas were going to come out with another one of their farm parody videos. I nearly decided just to scrap my little project when I saw their new one online last night, but I decided to go ahead and publish mine anyway. It may not be well-produced, have mass appeal, or receive a fraction of the attention some other videos receive, but what the heck! "Have a Dairy, Merry Christmas" has all the key characteristics of my other song videos: I made it up, I made it on the cheap, and I made it with a message. Yeah, it's low (no) budget and the audio track isn't anywhere close to being in sync with the video, but it does have cows, a Santa hat, and it comes from my heart.

I hope you enjoy it. And if you can't laugh with me, it is completely understandable and acceptable to laugh at me.


Have a dairy, Merry Christmas! It's the best time of the year.
In your cereal bowl or your cup of Joe, add milk for holiday cheer.
Have a dairy, Merry Christmas, and when you sit down to eat
Ask for cheese...it's sure to please...and have ice cream as a treat.

Ho, Ho, don't you know Santa comes on Christmas Eve!
So pour him a glass of milk to enjoy before he leaves.

And have a dairy, Merry Christmas, and in case you didn't hear
Don't be contrary have a dairy, Merry Christmas this year!

Ho, Ho, don't you know quality is guaranteed.
'Cause the cows are milked with pride for you by dairy farmers just like me!

So have a dairy, Merry Christmas, and in case you didn't hear
Don't be contrary have a dairy, Merry Christmas this year!
Don't be contrary have a dairy, Merry Christmas this year!

Great job Will.

It isn't easy putting yourself out there like that. I am not sure as to whether I would be able to do something like that or not.

Hope all is well.
