Twelve Days

Yes, I realize the twelve days of Christmas are the days between Christmas and Epiphany...

...but this video is too great not to share now.

It's by Straight No Chaser, an acapella group from the University of Indiana, and is a wonderfully inventive (and very well-sung) version of The Twelve Days of Christmas. You get your first clue that this is going to be out of the ordinary when from the beginning, they lose track of which day they're on. Sure enough, further in, Rudolph, Carol of the Bells and Deck the Halls all make cameo appearances, as do the Dreidel Song and the 80's rock group Toto.

It's a classic. Even better than the Mackenzie Brothers (you know that one: "and a beer...in a tree"). Much better sung, too. Of course, just about anyone can sing much better than the Mackenzie Brothers.

Except, of course, Yoko Ono. Eek.

Anyway, here's the clip. Enjoy!
