Thread Name: My favourite Christmas songs
Subject: RE: My favourite Christmas song
"Oh Holy Night" is my all time favorite, although Christmas in the trenches gets me weeping every blasted time. My favorite this year is a new one we're doing by Johnathn Coulton called "Chiron Beta Prime." Starts out:

"This year has been a little crazy for the Andersons.
You may recall we had some trouble last year.
The robot council had us banished to an asteroid.
That hasn't undermined our holiday cheer.
And we know it's almost Christmas from the marks we make on the wall. And that's our favorite time of year.

Chorus: Merry Christmas, from Chiron Beta Prime-where we're working in a mine for our robot overlords-did I say overlords-I meant protectors-Merry Christmas, from Chiron Beta Prime..."

Maybe you gotta be a sci-fi geek to appreciate it...
