Put the Lights on the Tree

In an ongoing effort to post (almost) every day this week. Get out the Windex, Mama. I'm on a music streak.

On this 7th day of Advent, here are seven reasons why Sufjan Stevens' brand new 5-disc Christmas album should be enjoyed by you and your yuletide loved ones.

1. (A suprisingly sweet rendition of) "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing"
2. "It’s Christmas! Let’s Be Glad!"
3. "What Child Is This Anyway?"
4. "Come on! Let’s Boogey to the Elf Dance!"
5. "That Was the Worst Christmas Ever!"
6. "Get Behind Me, Santa!"
7. "Did I Make You Cry On Christmas Day? (Well, You Deserved It!)"

(And...Happy Birthday, Sarah Painter Constable! Me and baby Jesus were so glad you were born.)

Oh Suf, I just heart him. Wasn't that a good interview in the last Relevant? Speaking of that, you really should listen to the 12/1/06 podcast. It made me laugh quite hard. Yes, I would like those chords if you have them please.
Ok I have to go write a huge essay about My Name is Asher Lev. That is an excellent book and you should read it but for some reason I feel like you already have. Love to you!
