I want to go Winter Holiday of Choice (WHOC) Caroling next year! But first, I need to figure out what to sing. I invoke the creative power of you, my muliticultural readership! What songs would be fun (and easy…) to sing and appropriate for various holidays that happen mid-winter? Are there Kwanzaa Carols? Hanukkah Hymns? Solstice Songs? Atheist Anthems? I figure we can go from house to house, and wear buttons with “Ask me for a solstice song!” or even “Ask for our hit favorite, ‘Shut up and get off my porch you hippie freak (Silent Night reprise)’.” Let’s see…categories:
- Christmas, with Jesus in
- Olde Tyme Christmas (Victorian carols?)
- Santamas/generic winter (sans Jesus)
- Are there any Muslim holidays this time of year?
- Just silly, no holiday involved (I’m thinking “After the Ball“)
Sound clips and/or lyrics would be magnificent. C’mon, you don’t really want to *work* today, do you?
(Also…who’s going with me?)
