Sanity Break: Three Holiday Songs by Sufjan Stevens

by Nomad

I think it's time to take a break from politics for a few days and enjoy the holidays. Whether that means Christmas, or Hanukkah or a belated recognition of winter solstice, whatever, just consider this post a bit of relief from the relentlessly depressing political news.

To take our minds off of all that, I have selected the ever-quirky Sufjan Stevens who apparently has a particular fondness for this time of year. He has not one but two Christmas collection albums

Here he performs "Lumberjack Christmas / No One Can Save You From Christmases Past."

The time-honored "Have Yourself a Merry Christmas" gets the Sufjan treatment. 

And finally, there's this hauntingly beautiful song entitled "That Was The Worst Christmas Ever!" The artwork was created by John P. Gelety.

Here's wishing you all peace and love from Nomadic Politics.
