‘Dominick the Donkey’
The only song on this list to get regular airplay each holiday season, “Dominick the Donkey” tells the tale of an Italian Christmas donkey who helps Santa deliver toys to children. The donkey helps Santa because, as the song explains, “the reindeer cannot climb the hills of Italy.” Why a donkey? And why Italy? These questions will haunt me until the day I die. —Jeff Royer
