Tomorrow, in fact. No, I can't promise that you'll wake up and the past month (hell, year!) will have just been an entire season of Dallas, but I am here to give you - and myself - a little respite. This Christmas season I just couldn't bear to put together another 12 days of miserable Christmas songs (plus, my mother-in-law made me promise I wouldn't), so I'm going in the opposite direction: 12 Unrepentantly Happy Days of Christmas Songs.

As per the past couple of years, I'll give you a song a day leading up to Christmas, starting tomorrow. You can use it. In the meantime, soak in the misery of last year and the year before, if only to escape the misery of this year.
