The light is getting low, the year is winding down, the halls are being decked, and you know what that means: time for the most honoured tradition of this Christmas season. Yes, yes, it is time for a curated selection of some of the most depressing Christmas songs I could lay my paws on. Not So Merry Christmas has gone through so many stages and evolutions, from the mix CD made by my sister and I, to the new, improved, expanded CDs we burned each year, to a disk I mailed out to people who asked, to a giant list on spotify, and now, returning to its roots, an album-length selection of some old classics, some new favourites, and some only tangentially related to Christmas but it’s my party and I can cry if I want to. Literally!
sob over enjoy this list of some exceedingly sad songs. I made it for you.
Not So Merry Christmas 2018 will be public until Epiphany, as is tradition, and then it shall disappear until next year.
