What are your and your family’s holiday viewing, listening, and/or reading rituals?
Personally, I find Christmas Story kind of creepy and trippy myself, but I’m a sucker for:
- It’s a Wonderful Life on TV or DVD
- “Fairytale of New York” by The Pogues and (my father’s favorite, and hence an Xmas special) “Merry Christmas, Baby” by Bruce Springsteen
- “A Christmas Memory” by Truman Capote (we have friends who read it aloud as a group each year, and it’s a neat tradition)
- William Burroughs’s “A Junky’s Christmas” is also kind of awesome in its own way
