Song #13: “Christmas Wrapping” by the Waitresses

I love this song so much. Almost as much as “Last Christmas.” The ’80s really did Christmas music right.
There was a point in my life, I was probably about 15, when I knew every single word to this song. And when I was even younger, I was convinced that this very story would someday happen to me. I mean, that’s what happened to 20-somethings, right? I’d be living in the city, playing tag with some cute boy for most a year, and after I settled down with the idea of spending Christmas alone, we’d bump into each other at the corner market while both picking up cranberry sauce and it’d be magic. Around that same time I think I also believed in the Care Bears and that I could actually stand on a cloud if I tried.
Anyway, here’s “Christmas Wrapping” by the Waitresses.
