Considering that we're in the middle of the Holidays, I thought it'd be a good idea for all of us to share some of our favorite Holiday songs.

I'll go first.

You will all hate me, but I need to admit it.

And some of this...

And finally, on a more serious note...

Sufjan Stevens has some pretty good Christmas songs.

And while not especially Christmassy, this song is called The North Pole.

I imagine that everyone in Japan is on the best psychoactive drugs constantly and this video is a constant nightmare reality in which the population lives.

@Ravenlight:

Actually, it's more that Japan in general just doesn't give a fuck about Christmas. It's more their time to get laid and eat an entire bucket of KFC. Clearly, America's been doing Christmas wrong the entire time.

Stop trying to push your moon-man propaganda. Foreign people are all crazy and Cyborg Justice was a great video game.

I don't think there are any other possible answers than this Swedish faux-German synthpop christmas song.

Trust me: I'll have enough time to push my propaganda next week, when I'm celebrating Christmas. For now, though, I'll settle for "you're racist and Cyborg Justice is fuck".

The trinity of awesome starts here.

@Video_Game_King:

I'd have gone with "xenophobic" or "full of shit." "Racist" is just inaccurate.

Also, punctuation inside or outside quotation marks if you're not quoting a whole sentence? Neither way feels right.

@Ravenlight:

I only put the period in the quotes if I'm quoting the entire sentence.

I needed that. Thank you very much.

White Wine in the Sun by Tim Minchin, for two reasons: Because Minchin is a stunning artist, and because Christmas occurs at the height of summer (I'm looking at you, northern hemisphere).

Periods go inside quotation marks if you're in the US. The only exception is a quote containing a single letter: Let's call our example "x". British English instead follows the usual convention for exclamation/question marks, i.e. whether or not they are part of the quote.

First, the one that everyone will understand: 
 
  

   
 
And then there are the ones that only very few users will understand. 
 
Like this one, or this one 
 
I didn't put the videos here because people who don't understand the language would get nothing out of listening to them.

These three are my favourite.

@JadeGL: I think my favourite thing about the Bowie/Crosby video is the awkwardly sincere banter at the beginning. Such a strange thing, I have always loved it.
