A lot of great Christmas songs tell a story.
"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" tells the story of a misfit mammal who uses his glowing red to bail out the jerks who taunted him and save Christmas.
"Frosty the Snowman" is about a talking, walking snowdrift who eventually breaks the hearts of children everywhere by (SPOILER ALERT) melting.
But few Christmas songs tell as interesting a story as today's song, The Waitresses' "Christmas Wrapping." An alternative Christmas classic, the song is about a girl who is thinking about just skipping the holiday season because of a few missed connections with some fellas. Obviously, these were the days before Craigslist.
