The McElroys are doing their annual Candlenights liveshow, celebrating this well known and totally not made up winter holiday. It’s streamable, inexpensive and a lot of fun. The ongoing Hallmark Christmas movie parody “A Medicine Call Christmas” alone is worth the price of entry.

TIL:

I’ve never been a Carrie Underwood fan, and the little bit of trivia at the end of the thread gives me yet another reason to feel that way.

If you choose to sing the third verse but change the words to hide what it’s really about, you’ve outed yourself as a proud racist.
