1. Dominick the Donkey, Lou Monte
If we wanted to hear that much braying, we’d sit next to our asthmatic uncle Fred.

2. Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer, Elmo & Patsy
Because Nana’s drinking is no laughing matter.

3. The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late), The Chipmunks & David Seville
Regrettably, the Xanax is in our other purse.

4. Jingle Bells, The Singing Dogs
Hmmm, barking dogs. See also: reasons to move.

5. Feliz Navidad, Jose Feliciano
The only Spanish we retained from high school.

6. I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, Tommie Connor
Fanning the fears of infidelity and broken marriages since 1952.

7. Mamacita, Donde Esta Santa Claus?, Augie Rios
Sparking the Santa-ain’t-real conversation in homes all across the country.

8. Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Someone’s gonna yell “like a light bulb!” and think they’re being cute. But they won’t be.

9. Christmas in Hollis, Run-DMC
Santa doesn’t get jacked in the ’hood. How festive.

10.The Christmas Shoes, NewSong
Why would you do this to yourself? Seriously, people take medication to avoid this feeling.
