I love Christmas music!

I don't know about y'all, but we have a station (or two) in Mobile that start playing Christmas music non-stop somewhere around August 23rd! Anyway, I've heard "I'll be home for Christmas", "Jingle Bell Rock" and "Santa Baby" about 47,069 times so far. So I thought I'd add a couple of new versions I found on Fast Company's website. I get the magazine in the mail and it's pretty interesting most months so I visit the website too. Enjoy these recession-ized favorites!

New home sales, they are dropping
No one feels like going shopping
It is awful, it’s true
But what can you do
Be happy that you’re breathing and alive

No one has any money
It is not even funny
Your friends are all broke
But life is a joke
Be happy that you’re breathing and alive

In a year the worst will sure be over
We’ll be back and strong and on our feet
Unless we’re second place by then to China
But being number two is just as sweet

Suck it up, we will manage
We’ll repair all the damage
We’re just in a slump
It’s just a speed bump
Be happy that you’re breathing and alive


Help us out, help us out, help us Barack
We’re in a sling, so please do your thing
You are the new guy and that means so much
Do you mind being our little crutch?

Soon you’ll be, soon you’ll be in office, Barack
It’s up to you, we haven’t a clue
You have inherited quite a big mess
We expect the best!

We’re in fright time, it’s the right time
To tell us it’s okay
Sure you’re human, but things are loomin’
We need a miracle, we need it today

Hurry up, Prez-Elect, get on the stick
Solve all our problems now
We like to abdicate responsibility
So, please help us out
Won’t you help us out
Please just help us Barack!

Seriously, don't forget that this time of year isn't really about the Biggest, Best and who can spend the most money....just being with friends and family should help take some of the stress away. And if it doesn't, just keep singing!
