Deck the halls with Buddy Holly – and Lady Gaga Gaga Ga, Ga Gaga Ga…


“Deck the halls with boughs of holly, 
     Fa la la la la, la la la la.
‘Tis the season to be jolly
     Fa la la la la la, la la la.” 
         Traditional Christmas song “Deck the Halls”
         Original writer unknown


“Deck the halls with advertising,
     Fa la la la la, la la la la.
‘Tis the time for merchandising,
     Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Profit never needs a reason,
     Fa la la la la la la la la.
Get the money, it’s the season,
     Fa la la la la la, la la la.”
         Stan Freberg (b. 1926) 
         American comic genius
         His satiric song “Green Chri$tma$” (1958)


“So, ‘tis the season where we annually get into the inimitable argument over whether people should be saying, ‘Merry Christmas’ or ‘Happy Holidays’…It’s time for the War on Christmas/Pluralism — depending on your point of view.”
       Blogger Scott H. Payne
       On The League of Ordinary Gentlemen blog, Dec. 17, 2009


“Light me up, put me on top
Let’s fa la la la la, la la la la.”

       Outré musician Lady Gaga
       Her XXXmas song “Christmas Tree” (2008)
