Christmas on the Web!

Of course, during this season I’m always humming “Christmas at Ground Zero”. But there are more tunes to enjoy: the prize for Bitterest Christmas Song of the Season this year goes to Hello Saferide’s “I-Pod X-Mas”. I always love to listen to David Sedaris’ 1992 Santaland Diaries reading. Other classics include SCTV’s McKenzie Brothers’ Beer Nog and especially their version of “The Twelve Days of Christmas”. Alas, I couldn’t find a clip of Eddie Izzard’s routine on “The Twelve Days of Christmas”.

Happy Christmhannukkwanzeid!
