Shout out to all retail workers that will have to listen to the same 6 Christmas songs all day for the next 2 Months.

I was a retail worker for four years, at a bookstore, so we got fairly decent Christmas music (we’d usually choose 3-4 of that year’s holiday albums - the years that the Blind Boys of Alabama released theirs was a good year) but we’d still get sick of them.

Except one.

There was one Christmas album I never got sick of. We’d all perk up and cheer a bit when this disc got its turn in the rotation. I heard it several times a day at least. What is this magical Christmas album, you may ask?

It was “’Tis the Season” by Los Straitjackets.

Los Straitjackets are a surf-guitar instrumental combo who perform in all-black and Mexican wrestling masks.

Yep. Holiday tunes played in surf guitar. I never got sick of it. It always got my feet moving.

Here’s a sample, their version of Sleigh Ride, ah I know it so well.
