HO HO HO!
Here is our December Holiday Music Playlist for 2018!
“…some burgers, some beers, a few laughs.
Our f*cking troubles are over, Dude.”
– Walter Sobchak, “The Big Lebowski”
Jimmy Buffett “Mele Kalikimaka”
From the classic “Year Without A Santa Claus”, it’s Snow Miser!
I’m Mister White Christmas
I’m Mister Snow
I’m Mister Icicle
I’m Mister Ten Below
Friends call me Snow Miser
What ever I touch
Turns to snow in my clutch
I’m too much!

Or whether “Die Hard” is a Christmas movie (Yes It Is.).
