12 Songs of Christmas - Song #8

Guster are one of those bands that I don’t know enough about, but everything I’ve heard from them I’ve liked, so I guess I’ll have to make it one of my New Year’s resolutions to check them out more thoroughly.
This song is nothing like their usual body of work, but it’s a bit of holiday whimsy that has always struck my funny bone. I had it as my ringtone last year in order to fight off the chorus of morons who had dogs woofing out “Jingle Bells” as their ringtones.
Why this is better than the doggy “Jingle Bells” I can’t quite quantify, but it just is. And if by chance you find it annoying, at least it’s short.
