It's that time of year again, and here to warm your heart and get you into the holiday spirit, it's Eric Idle performing the beloved seasonal favorite, Fuck Christmas. Ho Ho Ho!

I cannot describe the feeling I would have if they played this over the PA at the grocery store, even just once.

Someone I follow on twitter was doing this thing today for like 6 hours where if you called her phone, she'd sing you a carol in Spanish and then hang up.

I liked that better, although this is kind of funny.

Eric Idle, you're a funny dude and all, but fuck you if you don't like Christmas. (And fuck you if you don't like that Panama's an isthmus.)

(And I especially liked the line about elves.)

This is a misunderstanding of the miracle of Christmas. Virgin birth. No fucking.

Virgin birth. No fucking.

Where's the fun in that? It's like the religious version of "All hat, no cattle."

Why marry the cow when you can have the Divine Savior for free?

I Fear you may have linked to the wrong song.

Oh well, I guess I just believe Christmas was better in the 1980's

A counterpoint from a fellow free-thinker. I'm trying to come around on the Christmas thing, and I'm not there yet, but Tim Minchin gives me some hope.

Didn't need to do that here in pagan Japan! But, yeah, hmm, guess it depends on what country you're in. Which, according to your profile page, is a little island over Europe way. Guess they frown on this kinda thing over there...

This is currently on heavy rotation in my subversive Christmas song list. I need to add all of these songs to my list.

Fortunately all the awesome bacon and cheese over here in Ireland makes up for youtube shenanigans.

(Just got back from the market, going to be so fat by New Years)

This is the BEST SONG EVAR (note, it's Christmas and I work in retail. I am entitled to a little grar.) and I have just used it as a Facebook invite to, yes, a Christmas party. I can't believe I've never heard it before, as I both loathe and love Christmas and more or less unreservedly love Eric Idle, although I don't think his brief foray into science fiction authordom was well thought out. Thanks, flapjax!
