The Twin Peaks 12 Days of Christmas featuring a few actual cast members of the show (including BOB!), recorded by those wacky radio folks at KROQ in Los Angeles and barely tied-in to their first annual "Almost Acoustic Christmas" concert which continues to this day. Lyrics here. Previous Peaks

I don't have a link but in related news, last night, on the the penultimate Best Show on WFMU, Gary The Squirrel did a pretty hilarious Twelve Days of X-mas Gifts from AP Mike.

OMG I HAD COMPLETELY FORGOTTEN ABOUT THIS. It takes me back to high school, hearing this on the radio, would've been Christmas 1990, and the Christmas party I had with my friends in mom's rental house that had just been remodeled. We were pretty much all crazy about Twin Peaks, but few more obsessed than I was. (It is not particularly surprising that less than two years later I was in Washington state. THE TREES.)

I've heard I can't tell you how many 12 days of Christmas songs, and this, this is among the best.

Aaah! I just finished watching Twin Peaks (for the first time, I'm only about 20 years late to the party). This is amazing.
