It’s Christmas Eve Eve and the last of the (extended) Christmas Five Songs for this year. And the end to my weirdest and most unsettled holiday season ever. The 26th can’t come fast enough because then I’ll know I’m looking forward. To something. Something better.
And I threw an 11th song in at the last second. Because nobody oughta be alone on Christmas. And it’s one of the best Christmas songs ever. (How did Darlene Love get lucky enough to snag two of the best, let alone one?) And because Clarence is all over the song.
Anyway, have a good Christmas. Or at least a peaceful one.
