The Christmas song "The Twelve Days of Christmas" is actually a reference to the twelve days between Christmas day and Epiphany. Snopes, as always, has a great discussion of some of the legends surrounding it. Being in list form it's ripe for parody and abuse, like the following. Bob and Doug Mackenzie came sweeping down from The Great White North in the early 80's with this one. If you're having a hard time deciphering the Canadian, a touque (as in 5 golden touques) is a knit hat. If you don't get it then step off, eh? Oh wait, step off is if you're doin' the Humpty Hump. Take off, eh!
I've talked about Straight No Chaser before. They started out as an acapella group at Indiana University and there's still a SNC there but the professional group was a 90s incarnation. This performance from 1998 went viral in 2006 and since then they've reformed, gotten a record deal and become a staple during PBS pledge drives. They're currently touring and I'm sure they'll be doing this a LOT.
The new Muppets movie opened last week and while I'm sure Jason Segel is awesome in it for me there's no human companion they can possibly have that can top John Denver. This one is from the 1979 special A Christmas Together.
Have a great Monday!
