    Hi people! Soon it'll be Christmas and I translate some Christmas songs for a Russian site. And I decided to ask you, the English-speakers, to explain me an interesting moment from a song.
    The question is: Who is that sergeant-major and what is he doing in this song? :) Maybe it's a part from a proverb or so... I have even no idea why in a Christmas song they sing about a sergeant-major!
    Thank you!

    A radio telethon to raise money to help families who have children in the local Children's Hospital over the holidays (food vouchers, gas cards, hotel vouchers, air fare, whatever's needed.)

    There are excerpts from a CD that includes "highlights" of the 2010 going on in the background (right now, I believe it's the interview with REO Speedwagon, who are performing a benefit concert for the hospital tomorrow night.)

    The sergeant-major might be pretending to be St. Nicklaus or not, depending on how old the song is. He has had enough of war and he has stolen a sleigh for the children's sake. It is a time of war and sadness, and he's trying to cheer up the children. They have been through a lot. He is giving them sleigh rides in keeping with the theme of the poem which is to learn from misfortune but celebrate everything else. It makes me wonder why the bells have to be silver. That might be important, too.

    Just Gerry Garcia? What about the rest of the Grateful Dead?

    Some more that I think might bring back "fond" memories: Crosby, Stills and Nash (sometimes with Young); "classic" (pre-1980s) Chicago; early Styx; the Rolling Stones; Three Dog Night; Pink Floyd; the Eagles; Dylan...
