      Steve McDonald Fan Club Newsletter #25
      Sent December, 2007

      Dear Friends, Fans, and Family,
      Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Eid-Ul-Adha, the
      Wiccan Yule, or the Feast of the Saturnalius, this time of the year
      seems to bring out a common thread of fellowship and good will in
      people. Sometimes in this stressful, strife-torn world, we need to be
      reminded of the goodness that resides within all of us.
      I am putting together another flip book of Christmas wishes for
      Steve, from the Fan Club. Please send a picture and/or Christmas wish
      you would like to be included in the book. He really appreciated
      everyone's kind wishes on his birthday, and I am sure he would love
      this as well. So please be a part of this! Hurry and send your wishes
      to jackie@... The last date to be a part of this
      is December 20th.
      Etherean Music has a SPECIAL HOLIDAY OFFER for Fan Club Members! If
      you've been anxiously awaiting Steve`s next CD, or if you're looking
      for a unique gift for a special someone, scroll down to ETHEREAN
      MUSIC NEWS. They are offering Steve's Christmas CD, WINTER IN
      SCOTLAND: A HIGHLAND CHRISTMAS for a special price! Time is limited!

      special gifts for the holidays! There is a new 2008 calendar--you can

      Steve's wee newsletter blurb
      "Almost Xmas again, can't believe it, well I can believe it because
      it is!
      Still slugging along with the new album, inching my way through it,
      it's taking awhile but it's something you cannot hurry, it tells me
      when it's ready and I would say hopefully by end of march I should
      have it completed (famous last words).
      Anne Outterson from the club is posting a new video of me shortly
      which will be viewable on the club website and on U Tube looking
      forward to that. Take care, talk soon"

      This year Santa's wearing a kilt. Steve McDonald, at his playful
      presents a sure Holiday classic. Special guest, 17-year-old "Album of
      the Year" nominee Hollie Smith, lends her graceful vocal stylings to
      Winter In Scotland -- a joyous blend of traditional favorites
      complemented by McDonald's award-winning Celtic flavor. Steve also
      contributes a magnificent new song (Christmas Time Again) celebrating
      this special time of year. From Bells to Bodhran, this is not your
      typical holiday album....dig out the mistletoe, hang the stockings,
      turn up the stereo...Steve McDonald just added a bit of spice to your
      holiday catalog!

      One final Christmas reflection... When my kids were little, they
      asked me how Santa could get into the house (we had no chimney and,
      hey, this is L.A.--no one sleeps with the doors unlocked). I told
      them he that he was magic, and he"believed" his way in. They embraced
      that concept, and to this day, my kids "believe" their way in to the
      most amazing situations!
      May you "believe" your way in to your fondest dreams this holiday

      All Best Wishes,
