It's a very Nickelodeon Christmas with SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora, Jimmy Neutron, the Fairly Oddparents, the Rugrats, and the Backyardigans. Nick Holiday opens with SpongeBob and his pals singing "Very First Christmas"; they rhyme the made-up word "loverly" with the phrase "harm you bodily" and still maintain their holiday spirit. Dora contributes backing vocals to "Feliz Navidad," with a friendly male voice leading, and the Rugrats baby-talk their way through "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer." The impersonated infant voices are pretty grating -- at least to grown-up ears -- especially when they start yelling "Here we go here we go!" over "Rudolph"'s hip-hop beat. But like the rest of Nick Holiday, the song is bright and irrepressibly happy, perfect for keeping kids occupied while you finish wrapping their presents.
