Welcome to December. I have spent most of my Christmases in Los Angeles, where it never snows. It has been bitterly cold at night lately, which has helped get me into the holiday spirit and reminded me how unbelievably bad I am at dressing for and dealing with shitty weather. When I hear Christmas songs, I think of the "ironic" montages from Shane Black movies (and others) where a holiday song plays over shots of palm trees. I didn't have the requisite non-native distance to get that that was supposed to be weird. My family drove around suburban Burbank every year to check out the Christmas light displays and watch a guy dance on his lawn in a robot costume (we called him "Funky Robot Santa"). Seasonally decorated palm trees still make me feel more excited than firs. Here's the Top Ten Hot Holiday Songs from the Billboard Charts.
