Do They Know It's Christmas?



Again with the off-topic, but I had to share. Few things can sum up one of the most authentic expressions of the meaning of Christmas AND celebrate fabulous New Wavey Britpop nostalgia in one fell swoop. I can usually hold it together until the line "Well, tonight thank God it's them instead of you," and then it's all over. (Does Bono not look like he's about twelve here?)

This whole song chokes me up and give me a big happy at the same time, and I feel both ancient and instantly right back in junior high. I hope it brings you a smile and a sniffle as well.

Back to birth and babies and boobs tomorrow: for today, Merry Christmas everyone.

  1. Merry Christmas, Anne!

    (Me? I always thought that was the *worst* line in the entire song!) [Ducks.]
