It's A Moustache Miracle!

When I was younger I was never really into Christmas music. I would hear it on the TV, in Wal-Mart, and when I would go up to this huge animatronics bear that used to be in the mall where I grew up, but it meant nothing to me. As I grow older I realize how important Christmas is, and to know that my favorite indie-rockers love it too, makes it that much better. There is quite a bit of Sufjan on here, but that can’t really be helped because his sounds lends itself to the yuletide, and also he released a 5 EP box set last year that was dedicated to Christmas music. Most of the songs are originals, but some are renditions of traditional holiday favorites. Although most of the songs on here are by Sufjan, my favorite is of Montreal’s song, “My Favorite Christmas (In A Hundred Words Or Less).” Despite Kevin Barnes’ atheism, the heartfelt love song is bolstered by the Christmas theme, and to me that is what Christmas should be about: getting together with whoever is special to you and telling them that you love them, because Jesus is love. So, essentially we can look at Christmas as the birth of love.
