Another one of my FAVORITE Christmas songs is Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses.
I remember the first time I heard it was in a nightclub called Aldo’s in New Jersey. It was the last song played and then the lights went on. Everyone was in a festive mood and some of us were still singing, “Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas” long after the lights went on and the music (and drinks) stopped.
Hooray for the Waitresses for creating some stellar Christmas magic for us new wave fans on the onset of rap music in 1981, hence the clever name “Christmas Wrapping” (rapping).
