A Christmas Memory

Jackie shares his holiday memories of Michael in this recent interview from USA Today. Among other things, he explains the family's holiday traditions (their mom doesn't celebrate because she's JW but everyone else does), and says what some of us have been saying for years: the Jackson 5 Christmas Album is one of their best albums of all time.


  1. I just listen to the whole christmas album again, while studying. And I was thinking, wow... this album really has NO bad songs!
    Can you tell me what's the story behind 'little christmas tree' again? I forgot... It wasn't on the original lp, was it?
    And it sounds to me like it was a bit later recorded too, but I could be wrong.

  2. It was recorded later and was on a Motown Various Artists album

  3. Those words of Michael's, I think they are from the Oxford speech.

    Also, I noticed Jackie has the same beautiful hands as Michael's.

  4. Okay, I just listened to the video clip again and I see Michael's words are from the Oxford speech. I missed that the first time around. That was one of the best speeches ever made.

    Merry Christmas everyone! :)
