Uncle Barky's Countdown to Christmas -- finale

@unclebarkycom on Twitter
This year’s Countdown climaxes with a special Christmas Eve twofer.

First we have brief but memorable video from one of Dirk Nowitzki’s annual holiday visits to Dallas’ Children’s Medical Center. “Uncle Dirk,” whose heart remains bigger than his stature, makes these calls without fanfare or publicity. But in 2016, he allowed Dallas Morning News sports writer/columnist Brad Townsend to tag along. Brad’s Christmas Eve story this year reconnects with three of the families whose lives have been made brighter by Dirk’s kindness and generosity. You can read his account here.

And, as in the past, we end with Nat King Cole’s performance of “The Christmas Song.” No one will ever do it better, and this year’s video is a look at Nat in all his glory during a guest appearance in 1963 on The Danny Kaye Show.

Have yourself a very merry one, and enjoy.
