Merry Christmas, everybody

The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl, Fairytale of New York. Christmas dreams, shattered and otherwise. Grubby lyrics and soaring music. Tenderness and hope – which, after all, is what Christmas is all about.

Merry Christmas. And a tip of the tuque to Walt Kelly, who loved Christmas.
