Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, it’s time to start preparing for the next pseudo-religious, consumer-driven solstice celebration. The Christmas season is particularly irritating, with a full month of repetitious music and spendy build-up to the standard family confrontations and manufactured stress that makes us so nostalgic for the simpler days of our childhoods. Remember kids, if you don’t spend the right amount on unwanted gifts, baby Jesus will never stop crying, and when the baby cries we all lose sleep. This is one of the most acceptable Christmas albums I’ve heard. I didn’t hate it much at all.
