Bill Murray's Christmas Message To Us All

I'm not crazy.


It's Christmas Eve.  

It's the one night of the year when we all act a little nicer; we smile a little easier, we cheer a little more.  

For a couple of hours out of the whole year, we are the people that we always hoped we would be.  

It's a miracle.  It's really a sort of a miracle because it happens every Christmas Eve.  And if you waste that miracle, you're going to burn for it.  

I know what I'm talking about.  You have to to do something.  You have to take a chance.  You do have to get involved.

There are people that are having trouble making make their miracle happen.  

There are people that don't have enough to eat.  

There are people that are cold.  

You can go out and say hello to these people.  

You can take an old blanket out of the closet and say, "Here."  

You can make them a sandwich and say, "Oh by the way, here."  I get it now.   And if you give, then it can happen.  Then the miracle can happen to you.  

It's not just the poor and the hungry; it's everybody who has got to have this miracle.  And it can happen tonight for all of you.  

If you believe in this spirit thing, the miracle will happen, and then you'll want it to happen again tomorrow.  

You won't be one of these bastards who says, "Christmas is once a year, and it's a fraud."  It's not.  It can happen every day.  

You've just got to want that feeling.  And if you like it and you want it, you'll get greedy for it.  You'll want it every day of your life, and it can happen to you.  

I believe in it now.  

I believe it's going to happen to me now.

I'm ready for it.  And it's great.  It's a good feeling.  

It's really better than I've felt in a long time.  

I'm ready.  

Have a Merry Christmas everybody.

The Billboard Canada FYI Bulletin: Beyoncé Country Hit A Win For Canadian Songwriters

Also in this week's roundup of industry news: Kayla Diamond launches her own boutique imprint, SOCAN names an ombudsman, and time's running out for noms for this year's Rosalie Award honouring trailblazing women in broadcasting.

Beyoncé becomes the first Black woman to top Billboard’s Country Songs chart with “Texas Hold ‘Em” and it has gone to No. 1 on iTunes in 14 different countries and counting. There are some surprising connections. The song is co-written and co-produced by Ontario-born writer/producer Nathan Ferraro, whose previous collaborations include working with Lady Gaga, Carly Rae Jepsen, Bear Mountain, RALPH, Shawn Hook, Alyssa Reid, Jessie Reyez, Lowell and Tyler Shaw.

In fact, the song has deep Canadian origins. Two other Canadian songwriters participated in this runaway hit: Megan Bülow (who records and performs as bülow) as and Elizabeth "Lowell" Boland (a.k.a. Lowell), with Ferraro co-producing the track with Killah B and Beyoncé.
