When I was a child and I heard the hippopotamus for Christmas song all I could do was giggle. All I was hoping for was a puppy or pony ... but a hippo!???!! I mean I did think it through for a bit....how would I explain to Mom that the one tub in the house is now for the hippo, what would I feed it, where would I keep it after it out grew the tub? So many questions with no easy answers so, I stuck with wishing for a puppy or pony!
As an adult I see the humor behind the song and have way too much fun singing it with the littles in my life and giggling as we try to get through singing it. I know one of them goes where I did in her head trying to figure all the details out and all I can do is just knowingly smile.....because.......really........who doesn't want a hippopotamus for Christmas?
