I just got home tonight from playing a show at Station 4 in St. Paul, where I was the accordion player for Bobby Wildgoose and his Ragged Regiment (better known as Nate Houge and an army of musical friends). The show was indeed wild and gooselike, and consisting entirely of Christmas carols. My favorite, "Good King Wenceslaus."

Nerd I am, I have to be picky :-P

"Good King Wenceslaus" is a St. Stephen's Day Carol!

He "looked out on the feast of Stephen" and that's on Dec. 26!

Okay, I'll quit being picky now :)

Sounds like a good time!

December 26th is within the realm of the Christmas Cycle. GKW is a Christmas carol by this definition. Probably more so than Winter Wonderland which we also did, and which was also awesome.
