12 Days of Christmas

I’ve never liked the 12 days of Christmas, it’s monotonous and repetitive to the point of hysteria, even the suggestion that it is a catechism to learn more about the meaning of the holiday is seriously scrutinized. This video has been around for a long time, recorded back in 98, it really was huge last year, I have no idea how long it’s been bouncing around the interweb, but I figured it should finally be featured here. Maybe it’s just cuz I’m crazy studying for finals, but December always seems like a great time to just put up videos and maybe a song here and there, or maybe it’s just cuz I’m rather lazy. The group seen here is “Straight No Chaser” and they seem to be the standard A Capella group that seems to be making the rounds lately, but I do really enjoy their take on the 12 days of Christmas, mostly because by then end it doesn’t sound much like it at all. The group has 2 Christmas albums out, one has the live version of this song (Holiday Spirits) and the new one out this year (Christmas Cheers) has a studio version. Both albums are pretty fun A Capella holiday albums.
