Trigger Warning: Christmas

Chanukah begins in a week, so it seems this is the official holiday countdown. So it seems.

The first bit comes from London's Fire at Night. They make use of proper jingle bells!

Next, something from Los Angeles's very own 8mm (Eight Millimeter). This one's quite nice and reminds of Poe's cover of "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer." Remember Poe?

Couldn't not share this addition to the ol' inbox; Rabbi Steven Blane shares a song that is all-encompassing and relevant to the entirety of the holiday season. Wait for his shout out to Kwanzaa!

And perhaps even more kitschy than "Gonna Light the Lights Tonight" is the fresh holiday album from Roman Coppola, whose Molto Groovy Christmas is a hark back to the gaudy Italian Christmas of the '60s. My favorite is his version of "Feliz Navidad."
