The Rebel Black Dot Christmas Songs of the Day
Andy Williams, "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" from The Andy Williams Christmas Album (T.L.A.M.)

Commentary: "Scary ghost stories"? "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" is delightful, a veritable Yuletide institution, but what the heck? The only Christmas ghost story with which I'm familiar is A Christmas Carol. Andy Williams, harbinger of The Nightmare Before Christmas?

"There'll be parties for hosting,
Marshmallows for roasting,
And caroling out in the snow,
There'll be scary ghost stories
And tales of the glories
Of Christmases long, long ago…"

Sufjan Stevens, "It's Christmas! Let's Be Glad!" from Songs for Christmas (T.L.A.M.)


"Sing a carol to your Mom,
'Cause she know what's going on,
And she knows if you've been bad or good,
And if you get what you deserve,
To be graded on a curve,
Oh, you've got a lot of nerve…"
