Dad and Santa Walk Into A Bar
What could more fun than family at Christmas? That's right...nothing!!! The only thing better than your funny Uncle is dear old Dad. Pops enjoys a beverage now and again, and when the in-laws pay a visit for the Yuletide season, and all the pressure of being a caricature of the '50's ideal as the breadwinner, and Santa for a day, begins weighing heavy on his uni-brow, that beverage becomes a life saver. Just ask Commander Cody and John Denver.
But don't blame Pop. As we can see from our third (and best) song of the post, from the brilliant Robert Earl Keen the Holidays are a time for the whole family to tie one on. It's one of the Mountain's Top 5 Xmas songs of all time.

Stock up early this year. You never know who will be coming down your chimney.
