Very few Christmas songs were made just for kids. Now Evans Kamuru has stolen the classic hit we all know. He lost his two front teeth during Christmas last year.


Kamuru, from Olathe Kansas, lost his two front teeth in an attempt to pull off something all of us stubborn adults try now and then. He used his teeth as a cutting tool.

Last Christmas, it didn't work out for him. According to Fox4kc, while wrapping gifts for the season, he broke off one tooth due to some tape.

He described what happened:

"Not the best idea. And as I was doing it I felt something literally fly out of my mouth. Right on the carpet was my right upper front tooth.


The damage wasn't all done. A couple days into the new year of 2018, Kamuru's other front tooth came loose as he ate a waffle.

The ideal fix to Kamuru was dental implants to replace his crowned teeth. However, that was a highly expensive option.

Kamuru is a husband and a father to two daughters and Zeke, his five-year-old son who has autism. Therapy pulls in most of his finances.

He explained:


"This last half of a year has been really really tough for us as a family. [Therapy] comes first, and teeth are cosmetic for the most part."

So Kamuru went the inexpensive cosmetic route and opted to use a flipper. The temporary device fills the space of his lost teeth with a plastic tray. He has to remove it in order to eat.


The easy-going father did not let his situation dampen his Christmas spirit this year. Instead, he recorded a video of himself singing the classic seasonal song: "All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth."

While it went viral, it was a local effort that granted Kamuru his wishes. On Saturday, December 15, Kamuru attended the Christmas dinner and talent show at his church.

The Gospel Outreach Center of Kansas City held the events. At one point, they did a magic trick.


Kamuru said:

"At the end of it, they handed me a check with about $14,550."

The churchgoers had created a Whatsapp group and, with the help of his heartwarming video, shared his story. About 300 people donated.

He said:

"Just to think that they went out of their way to do this for us is very touching and humbling."

Kamuru was also appreciative of a discount he will receive from Gordon Dental of Leawood who are set to do the surgery. The kind act will allow him to save about $6,000.


With one procedure done the following Friday, Kamuru has two more to go. Then he will receive eight months of long-term care.

He was grateful:

"God cares, even about the little details of our lives that sometimes you don't think about."

Looking at the details of another Christmas classic, we found that it was actually meant to be for Thanksgiving. The song "Jingle Bells" was previously called "One Horse Open Sleigh."


Lyrics such as "A day or two ago I tho't I'd take a ride and soon Miss Fannie Bright was seated by my side" give an idea of how the song is not quite directly related to Christmas.

The song used to be sung around Thanksgiving before earning its spot around the more festive season. And people are happy to include it on the list.

Another Christmas classic is the famous Mariah Carey rendition of "All I Want For Christmas Is You."


Last month, the star herself shared a special moment with us in which her kids joined in on her Christmas hit.

Wearing winter outfits in the car, twins Moroccan and Monroe showed off their vocals along with their mother. Carey wore a black ensemble with a red scarf.

The cute clip received lots of love in the comment section. Many admire the kids' confidence and talent. Most of all though, they appreciated the spread of Christmas cheer.
