It’s about snow.
Seriously though, this is from one of the Christmas albums I grew up with. On an actual LP. Played on a portable stereo in my room.
Nat King Cole sings Mel Torme’s classic

Ok, I couldn’t leave you with that for the day. Here’s some Brave Combo:
One of the strangest bits of Christmas music ever recorded. The Residents:
How do you know Christmas is coming in Vegas? Somebody’s decorating cactus at the chocolate factory.
Somebody decided that the fact that Starbucks is using plain red holiday cups this year is part of some War on Christmas. Never mind the fact that the “holiday” images of years past — “Vintage ornaments and hand-drawn reindeer have appeared in past years” — are no more religious than Black Friday Sales. It’s ridiculous.
I wish I had time to make up stuff to be upset about.
Listen: If you want to “put Christ back into Christmas,” start with acts of kindness towards your fellow man and stop looking towards a coffee shop for advice.
