25 Days of Christmas Music: A Glummy Christmas

As I am writing this, I'm punchy from late night studying and the decision to plan out the last ten 25 Days of Christmas Music posts all at once because I don't want them to progressively get worse. I mean, Christmas should be the best, right? Anyway, I got 9 of them planned out, but for whatever reason I still didn't have one for the 21st, and I couldn't think of another Christmas song that I didn't hate. And then the Christmas miracle of a sidebar video option came up: "A Glummy Christmas." This is either the funniest thing I have ever seen, or the lamest, but I'm laughing hysterically. It's making fun of all the Christmas songs I hate (ones I've sung too many times/those involving claymation-based Christmas characters/drummers) all sung by one grim puppet.

Just watch it. And then tell me whether this is funny or not because I'm beyond repair at this point. I've watched it 5 times in a row, and it's not getting less hilarious.

Although I would still want to hear "Frosty the Snowman" with Michael McDonald. Am I right?


  1. It's pretty funny, but maybe because I'm putting of grading 35 papers? Yeah, I'm probably the wrong person to validate your response. Anyway, favorite: "The one with the chestnuts" and "All I Want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth (featuring the Mormon Tabernacle Choir)."

  2. "It's the sound of America gearing up for their once a year visit to church."

    Hilariously and cynical. Excellent find.
