Hey, I've gone with the Pogues, Sufjan, Run-DMC... I think I can indulge my love for this song without totally ruining my cred. Plus, what the hell, Sasha Frere-Jones likes it, so I'm not alone...
Having said that, one of my fondest Christmas memories is housesitting for my prof back in Boston and watching the Christmas edition of Pop-Up Video, which included a spectacular piss-take on this song, including such gems as "Falling snow in dreams can represent sexual excitement".
And on that cheery psychoanalytic note, Merry Christmas one and all!
