|| Complaining about “Santa Baby”.
| December 15
|| That friend who tells you every Halloween how Frankenstein isn’t properly the name of the creature decides everyone has to know if you don’t sing “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” so it’s suicidally depressing you’re doing it wrong, again.
| December 16
|| Sole annual appearance of “Chrissy, The Christmas Mouse” on any of the twelve Christmas music channels available to you. You miss it.
| December 17
|| “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” makes people think about Bill Cosby, feel even worse.
| December 18
|| Attempt at making a news-media satirical song out of “Walking In A Winter Wonderland” gets as far as “In The Meadow We Can Build A Newsman, And Pretend That He Is Aaron Brown” before running out of creative inspiration and being abandoned until next year, when it doesn’t get any father, again.
| December 19
|| Complaining about “Wonderful Christmastime”.
| December 20
|| That same friend gets on about how nobody remembers Walt Kelly’s “Deck Us All With Boston Charlie” except Gasoline Alley and who reads Gasoline Alley anymore except him and even he doesn’t like it exactly.
| December 21
|| Complaining that “My Favorite Things” is not at all a Christmas song and shouldn’t even be on this list.
| December 22

| December 25
|| “Silent Night” way overproduced.
| December 26
|| Everyone remembers melody of “Good King Wenceslas”, not anything else about it, including words or why anyone would sing it, but you somehow spell it correctly while trying to look it up.
| December 27
|| Hey, did they play the Kinks’ “Father Christmas” at all this year?

I got the ‘Frankie Goes to Hollywood’ reference…possibly a good thing in terms of musical eclectic-ness, but maybe not in terms of what will therefore happen on 24 December… 🙂
I’m glad you got it! We do listen to a bit more Frankie Goes To Hollywood around the house here than the average, owing to my love’s obsession with producer Trevor Horn, so I really figured that joke would have maybe one person who got it. I’m glad to have doubled my expectation.
