Drinking Up Christmas
An inebriated Holiday morning to you (yep, that's a very loose Tom Waits paraphrase).
We're continuing, a bit, our theme from Friday. Santa got busted with his hand in the liquor cabinet, but he still hasn't learned his lesson. Stupid Santa.
"Santa Came Home Drunk" by Clyde Lasley and the Cadillac Baby Specials is by far our favorite Christmas drinking song. Nothing else comes close. It's a shuffling blues tune about Santa on a bender. One hell of a bender, if you consider the laundry list of drinks Santa consumes in this classic tale. Essential.
Filthy punks, The Dwarves, detail another Santa bender, including a brawl between Ol' Saint Nick and Frosty. Good times.

Dive bars are warm and welcoming places during the Holiday season. Hmmm mmm.
