Colbert Christmas Special: John Legend Sings For His Nutmeg

You know, my kids really love those old Rankin Bass stop action Christmas specials and look forward to watching them immediately after Thanksgiving.

You know, my kids really love those old Rankin Bass stop action Christmas specials and look forward to watching them immediately after Thanksgiving. But I now have my own favorite Christmas special, thanks to Stephen Colbert and Comedy Central.

I had hoped to find a clip of Willie Nelson as the fourth Wise Man singing about his gift to the baby Jesus of a little pot, but John Legend singing about needing nutmeg was pretty damn funny too.

Serving eggnog without nutmeg is like serving turkey without a duck and a chicken inside it.

Words to live by. More clips over at Colbert Nation. Don't miss Jon Stewart trying to interest Colbert on the Festival of Lights.
