    It was first released on December 10, 1993, when a shareware copy was uploaded to an FTP server at the University of Wisconsin.

    there are 8mm films of me and my brothers and sisters coming down the steps on Christmas morning in our thermal undies and/or PJ's to go open our gifts

    my dad would put the Johnny Mathis Christmas LP on our 5000 pound magnavox console stereo and plug the tree in that actually smelled like a Christmas tree
