During the 1987 holiday season, MTV put the music video for “Christmas in Hollis” by rappers Run DMC in heavy rotation. It soon became a hit with me and my brother, and it is still a holiday favorite of ours. The “Christmas in Hollis” song is available at iTunes.
UPDATE: My brother has pointed out that the video is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year (!).
