Uncle Barky's Countdown to Christmas -- Episode 1

@unclebarkycom on Twitter
It’s become an annual holiday Christmas tradition. Well, OK, probably not.

But Uncle Barky again is in search of a dozen unique “Countdown to Christmas” videos down the homestretch to however you celebrate on Dec. 25th.

We begin with the lilting song stylings of Mandy Patkinkin, best known lately for his portrayal of heavily bearded CIA svengali Saul Berenson on Showtime’s Homeland, which will have its Season 3 finale on Sunday, Dec. 15th.

Patinkin also is a veteran Broadway musical star. And back in 1989, he performed a medley of “White Christmas” and “Jingle Bells” on the Today show. Clean-shaven and accompanied on piano, he does a nice version of White Christmas before rather unfortunately shifting to “Jingle Bells” at the 1:48 mark. It ends up being the ding dong-iest version I’ve ever heard.

Oh Mandy.
