If Billie Holiday Recorded a Christmas Album....

Dec 20, 2021

It's not the Christmas season until my wife Nancy and I hear "The Santaland Diaries," David Sedaris' always hilarious account of his time as a costumed Elf named Crumpet at Macy's flagship department store in New York. Classic. 

One of my favorite parts of the story comes when Crumpet, asked to sing a Christmas carol by the store Santa, decides to sing "Away in a Manger" as if he was Billie Holiday. Click here, since you have to hear it to believe it.
