Back in the beginning of November, we could not believe the stores were already starting to churn out the holiday tunes [2]. It’s an unspoken cultural rule that pre-Thanksgiving is too early for these things! Those greedy holiday music producers and their corporate power grabs …

But now, whether you believe it or not, we’re getting into that time the department stores thought was a month ago. Thanksgiving is over, and if you’re lucky, your food comas are too. Thus, it’s holiday music time.

The jingle-belling and sleigh-ride-together-with-you-ing is probably getting a little tiresome, so we thought we’d share some holiday tunes that are a bit left field: the more silly, outrageous, and hilarious, the better! Here’s to a jolly holiday season.
