Five for Friday

As we descend deeper into the holiday season there is one song I'm sure you've heard by now. And if you haven't yet, there's still eight days to go before the day that begins the traditional 12 days of Christmas.

By no means is this my favorite carol. It's cheesy and prone to lampooning. These days, the only versions I can stand to listen to are those that don't play it strait. Either through parody or creative interpretation, these are five of the most entertaining versions of The 12 Days of Christmas.

1. I shared this last year, and it's worth a repeat: Straight No Chaser's 12 Days (with nods to Rudolph, Toto, dreidels, and the art of wassailing)

2. Christmas can't be complete without a nod to the humor of Bob and Doug McKenzie (Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas) of the Great White North. And beer.

3. Comedian Randy Lubas (who sounds like Adam Carolla) appeared on The Bob and Tom Show to rant about what kind of crazy person it takes to pull of the gifts of the twelve days.

4. This next one should be a cautionary tale. Do Christmas sober. It's better for all involved.

5. Finally, for my wife's favorite version of the song John Denver joins The Muppets.
