All Parks and Rec fans know that February 13 is Galentine's Day in the fictional town of Pawnee. However, like other fictional-but-fun holidays before it (Festivus, Chrismukkah, Cheeseburger Picnic), Galentine's Day is worth celebrating in real life—if only for the breakfast.
It's like Lilith Fair without the angst. Plus frittatas.
Mixing classics with covers, this edition of BitchTapes contains some of our favorite Christmas songs, spanning decades, genres, and levels of corniness. From Thao Nguyen to Loretta Lynn and from Kristy MacColl to Eartha Kitt, you're sure to hear something you'll like. Plus, our mix contains a fair amount of songs that emphasize the not-so-jolly aspects of the season, like if you're heartbroken, broke, or in prison. Enjoy, and we hope your winter celebrations are swell! (Track list after the jump!)
I know there are some humbugs out there who don't like the holiday season, and that's fine. Cheer and snacks and the spirit of giving (OK, and stress and consumerism) aren't for everyone, right? But when people tell me that they don't like holiday music, I have a tough time believing it. Just about all of the musicians you can think of have recorded holiday music at some point during their careers, and a lot of it is really awesome. So open up your minds, scrooges! I've polled folks around the office and compiled a collection of some awesome holiday tunes, perfect for gift wrapping, wasting time at your desk, or dancing around the tree/menorah. Tracks and videos after the jump!
Whatever and whenever you celebrate this season, you can support what you love by shopping at BitchMart.
Here are some of our staff faves for gift giving that are IN STOCK and ready to send now! Be sure to snap up something special before they're gone. And remember, it's OK to treat yourself to something fun this season too...
