As if you needed one more thing to get you in the holiday spirit. Last year, She & Him, aka Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, released one of the more enjoyable contemporary Christmas albums. If you must know, I prefer my holiday music with like I prefer my eggnog — spike with bourbon. Give me The Kinks’ “Father Christmas” or The Pogues’ “Fairytale of New York” any day of the week during the holidays.
Anyway, this is still an enjoyable song, mostly because She & Him play it so straight. It makes you want to bundle up by the fireplace with your loved ones and be thankful for that warmth. As for the video, the animation is nice, but we can all admit that we’d rather watch the actual Zooey Deschanel parade around in a red santa hat and dress.
