Your Christmas Day Open Thread and Playlist

Merry Christmas, ladies and gentlemen! Here's a quick recap of the links from yesterday.

-We re-bumped the Festivus Airing of Grievances because Kyle thought it would be cool to add his stuff the day after Festivus THE DIRECTIONS WEREN'T HARD TO UNDERSTAND, KYLE! (Just kidding, it's still pretty awesome.)

-I put together a wish list for what I'd like some members of the Minnesota Vikings to receive in this season of giving.

-To fill out the roster and the practice squad, the Minnesota Vikings signed a couple of players, adding running back Henry Josey to the main roster and linebacker Justin Anderson to the practice squad.

As I don't anticipate a whole lot of folks being around today, what with it being the holiday and all, I'm just going to provide a playlist of some. . .slightly less traditional holiday music for folks that do happen to stop by.

We'll start with my personal favorite, because IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME IN HOLLIS, QUEENS!

And, of course, with all the MST3K fans we have in the house, there's no way we can leave this one out.

This one isn't a song, but it's one that I can't leave out of a Christmas playlist on our little site here.

I thought this one had disappeared from the interwebs, but it appears that it hasn't. . .awesome!

Now to our good friends from the Aqua Teen Hunger Force, who do things a little differently.

We do love our Muppets around here, too.

I know that just about everyone knows this one from their younger years.

If you're familiar with Postmodern Jukebox. . .or even if you're not. . .they do a very nice Elvis cover.

And another one I had (somehow) managed to forget about.

Last, but not least, Paul McCartney left the Beatles. . .and then this happened.

I think that should be sufficient for a while. If there are any other songs that you like that are a little more "offbeat" that I haven't included, feel free to throw them into the comments section.

We sincerely hope that you're enjoying your holiday season, and that you're celebrating responsibly. . .this season is almost over, and we need all of you back here for the long-term. Enjoy your family and friends and the rest of this holiday season, ladies and gentlemen. . .things might be a little on the slow side today, but we'll be back in full swing tomorrow.

Merry Christmas, everybody!
