For your consideration, the latest in an apparent tradition of really depressing Christmas songs.
I wrote this one last year (just about this time, oddly). Bart (of Zazou City fame) came over to the house Tuesday and put the squeezebox on it. I drove out to the burbs last night to get some video.

Yeah, it is depressing. That's just how this time of year is for a lot of people, especially in days like these.
If you're doing a little better than some this year, please consider donating to the Marine Corps' Toys for Tots charity. And there's never a better time to set aside a little something for your local food bank and, especially right now, OccupySandy.
