about

I'm no holiday curmudgeon, but I do like rewrites. And I’ve found this sentiment to be both true and under-represented in holiday genre-land: "It’s the most triggering time. It can be a wonderful time! But bear in mind- it can be a rough ride; this time of year.

lyrics

The Most Wonderful Time Parody – Samantha Cooper

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
For some it is jolly but others can’t rally from forcible cheer.
While the same ten or so songs clang in your ears.

It’s the shit showiest season of all.
When over appeasing and unresolved grieving loom under it all.
And the poor fragile empaths think it’s their fault; observe not absorb.

There’ll be high expectations with dwindling patience and magical thinking to boot.
There’ll be family staycations with low dose relations and elephants stuck in the room.

Instrumental

The earth will not requite there’s dwindling daylight and seasonal sadness is real.
There’s despondent widows and entitled kiddos who chafe at your Achilles heel.

It’s the most triggering time. It can be a wonderful time!
But bear in mind- it can be a rough ride; this time of year.
