This song will one day be regarded as a true Christmas classic, along the lines of “White Christmas”.

How could it not? It has it all: margaritas, bean dip, tampons, broken Spanish, cigarettes, and enough side-eyed looks at family drama to fill two or three more songs.

Seriously though, who doesn’t have a side of family (or two) that reminds you of the rag-tag bunch in this song? This is a great example of a song that’s funny because it’s true.

I could listen to this song on repeat — and totally have on the right kind of dreary winter Sunday… not unlike today.
