Day 18 – This is about the time most people get the blues for Christmas.  You haven’t bought any presents yet, the economy’s going in the toilet and you spent all your money on booze.  You caught Santa sneakin’ out the back door and next thing you know, your baby’s left you for some douchebag in a Cadillac.  Let’s boogie woogie with Santa and have a party.  Because later, you’re going to be drinkin’ this Christmas and spendin’ a lonesome New Year’s Eve in jail.   That’s the blues.
