Here's my selection for your enjoyment!

Title: Christmas Wrapping
Artist: The Waitresses
Available at: Amazon  

Here are the lyrics, so you can sing along!:

Bah, humbug!" No, that's too strong 
'Cause it is my favorite holiday 
But all this year's been a busy blur 
Don't think I have the energy 

To add to my already mad rush 

Just 'cause it's 'tis the season. 

The perfect gift for me would be 
Completions and connections left from 

Last year, ski shop, 

Encounter, most interesting. 

Had his number but never the time 
Most of '81 passed along those lines. 

So deck those halls, trim those trees 

Raise up cups of Christmas cheer, 

I just need to catch my breath, 
Christmas by myself this year. 

Calendar picture, frozen landscape, 

Chilled this room for twenty-four days, 

Evergreens, sparkling snow 
Get this winter over with! 

Flashback to springtime, saw him again, 

Would've been good to go for lunch, 

Couldn't agree when we were both free, 
We tried, we said we'd keep in touch. 

Didn't, of course, 'til summertime, 

Out to the beach to his boat could I join him? 

No, this time it was me, 
Sunburn in the third degree. 

Now the calendar's just one page 

And, of course, I am excited 

Tonight's the night, but I've set my mind 
Not to do too much about it. 

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!

But I think I'll miss this one this year. 

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! 
But I think I'll miss this one this year.
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! 
But I think I'll miss this one this year. 
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! 
But I think I'll miss this one this year. 

Hardly dashing through the snow

Cause I bundled up too tight

Last minute have-to-do's
A few cards a few calls
'Cause it's r-s-v-p
No thanks, no party lights
It's Christmas Eve, gonna relax
Turned down all of my invites.

Last fall I had a night to myself, 

Same guy called, halloween party, 

Waited all night for him to show, 
This time his car wouldn't go, 

Forget it, it's cold, it's getting late, 

Trudge on home to celebrate 

In a quiet way, unwind 
Doing Christmas right this time. 

A&P has provided me 

With the world's smallest turkey 

Already in the oven, nice and hot 
Oh damn! Guess what I forgot? 

So on with the boots, back out in the snow 

To the only all-night grocery, 

When what to my wondering eyes should appear 
In the line is that guy I've been chasing all year! 

"I'm spending this one alone," he said. 

"Need a break; this year's been crazy." 

I said, "Me too, but why are you? 
You mean you forgot cranberries too?" 

Then suddenly we laughed and laughed 

Caught on to what was happening 

That Christmas magic's brought this tale 
To a very happy ending! " 

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! 

Couldn't miss this one this year! 

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! 
Couldn't miss this one this year!

I love this song, it's so upbeat.   The only time I would hear it as a kid though was at Christmas.  Lately I don't ever hear it.  So I wanted to make sure I shared it with everyone.  I know it's not one of the more "traditional" holiday songs. But it's still a classic.  I couldn't find the actual music video to go with the song.  But I really liked the whole Christmas light action going on in this one. So you can sing along and pretend you are really out in the snow caroling! (of course while enjoying some nice hot cocoa in the comfort of your home.) 

I was originally gonna choose I'll Be Home for Christmas. Since this is the first Christmas in a long while that I will be actually celebrating Christmas at home. But I get kinda depressed when I hear it too, since some of the people I would love to see on Christmas are 3000 miles away, and I wanted my song to be cheerful and make me happy as well as make people smile. So I hope you enjoyed the song! I'd love to hear in the comments what your favorite holiday song is and why.   Be sure to click on the badges below to hear another great song! Thanks for stopping by!
