Happy Holidays from the ESC Insider!

…and what could be a better song to represent a Eurovision holiday season than Gunnar Ólasson (who represented Iceland in 2001 and 2011) covering Tozzi and Raf’s “Gente di Mare”? Here’s “Komdu um Jólin (Come on Christmas)”:

This would be the perfect time to express my continued thanks to you, my readers, for sticking by the ESC Insider this year, especially through the site’s migration and facelift.  I appreciate every comment and every tick on my hit counter, and I hope you have as much fun reading this site as I do putting it together.  This year was a great (and often crazy) one here at the ESC Insider, and 2012 is shaping up to be just as wonderful, with your help, of course.  I have to thank my partners in Düsseldorf, ESCKaz, and my partners for 2012 (and beyond, I hope), ESCInsight.  From Minnesota to Azerbaijan (and everywhere in between), I look forward to bringing you my own personal spin on what’s going on in the world of Eurovision, and I hope to see you taking the journey with me.

Wherever you are, and whatever you might be celebrating this time of year, have a Happy, Healthy, and Loved Holiday Season!

Do you have any favorite ESC-related holiday songs?  Feel free to share them in the comments!
