Twelve Days of Last Christmas
In Chicagoland, snow is on the ground, lights are in the trees, and “Last Christmas” is on heavy Spotify playlist rotation. The soothing tones of British pop duo Wham! are pretty much all we think about. Last Christmas (and the very next day) have totally eclipsed holiday obligations. No presents, no decorations, no mugs of steaming mulled wine: only an endless chorus of “Give it to someone special, special.”
Welcome to Twelve Days of Last Christmas, a holiday countdown to the fateful day when George Michael gave his heart away. We’re going to bring you a new post every day until the 25th, and yes, every post is going to be about “Last Christmas.” You might as well give in now; Just reading this has the song stuck in your head.
