It wouldn’t be Christmas for me without playing the Waitresses’ delightfully droll carol, “Christmas Wrapping,” a tale of a lonely singleton who finds love in the supermarket checkout aisle on a magical Dec. 25. (I can’t help but grin every time I hear the delightful couplet, “A&P has provided me/ With the world’s smallest turkey.”) It may not necessarily be an improvement that this embedded clip pairs the song with a seizure-inducing display of holiday lights, but you can always look away as the music plays! Happy, happy. Merry, merry!
