More "Bah! Humbug!"

If you're with me in despising "The Little Drummer Boy" and "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree," listen to Fairytale of New York.

This is the version with Katie Melua, not the Kirsty MacColl version. The latter is grittier, but the former's easier to understand.

The people in the song aren't sanctimonious, and are in need of salvation.

Well found. That did the trick. Helped get the Bah fricking humbug Bug out my, well you know. Thanks for the tip. Is that guy hammered all the time? Loved her coat and loved the hurled insults of the type only the long-together couple can muster.

Merry, merry
