Christmas music that doesn’t suck (4)

I already slapped this one up this year, but it is about Christmas Eve (in the drunk tank), so up it goes again. Can’t tell you how delighted I was to learn that Shane MacGowan has new teefers for the holidays. I wonder if they’ve changed his “singing” voice. …

Meanwhile, Herself, Herself the Elder, Mister Boo and I drove to Fort Fun for an early (and delicious) holiday meal with my sister and her husband. A wonderful time was had by all, and — ¡que milagro! — the trip there and back was completely without incident. Normally we see a half-dozen cars upside down in the median thanks to the usual palette of human stupidities, but this time around there wasn’t even any serious stop-and-go. We even beat the snow home.

A Christmas miracle, to be sure. Here’s hoping your holiday goes likewise.

    I got one for everyone — Tim Minchin’s “White Wine in the Sun”. One of the great secularist anthems.

    Background: he’s Australian.

    Merry Christmas, Patrick and to all!
    I like most Christmas music and especially enjoy it in the kitchen while I bustle or schlump/drag myself around. I’m not crazy about hearing it since November 1st but I do like hearing it right through the Twelve Days of Christmas.
    Nina Simone’s version of “Little Girl Blue” is sung in counterpoint to the tune of “Good King Wenceslaus” to make a melancholy Christmas-y song. Not the usual fare.
