The 12 Tunes of Christmas – Day 11

While Sufjan Stevens may be falling well off pace in his goal to record an album about each of the 50 states, his behemoth Songs for Christmas release has provided enough material to include him in each “12 Tunes of Christmas” countdown from here to Kingdom Come.

In this tune Sufjan recalls his “worst Christmas ever” as his enraged father throws their gifts in the wood stove. Yeah, it’s not exactly a happy holiday tune, but the good news for young Sufjan, and the hope of mankind,  is that “in time the Lord will rise.”
