“Elbow-deep in turkey, ankle-deep in kelp – Tony Robinson goes in search of the not-so-happy holidays spent by those who’ve worked The Worst Christmas Jobs in History.

From the Justice of the Peace shutting down churches and barring Christmas pudding to the Puke Collector cleaning up after the excesses of merriment, Tony bravely tries his hand at the most terrible occupations that have made the festive season what it is, from the Roman feast of Saturnalia to the 19th century Dickensian Christmas. Other unpleasant positions include Yule Logger, Boar Hunter, Gossard, Back End of a Cow and Faggoter – someone responsible for gathering twigs in the snow.”

“Lyrics

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year
To save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year
To save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance
But you still catch my eye
Tell me, baby
Do you recognize me?
Well, it’s been a year
It doesn’t surprise me

Happy Christmas

I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying “I love you”
I meant it
Now I know what a fool I’ve been
But if you kissed me now
I know you’d fool me again

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year
To save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year
To save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special

Oh, oh, baby

A crowded room
Friends with tired eyes
I’m hiding from you
And your soul of ice
My god, I thought you were someone to rely on
Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man under cover, but you tore me apart
Now I’ve found a real love. You’ll never fool me again

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year
To save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year
To save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
I gave you my heart
A man under cover, but you tore him apart
Maybe next year I’ll give it to someone—
I’ll give it to someone special

Special
Someone
Someone
I’ll give it to someone—
I’ll give it to someone special

Who give me something in return
I’ll give it to someone—
Hold my heart and watch it burn
I’ll give it to someone—

I’ll give it to someone—
I’ll give it to someone special

I thought you were here to stay
How could you love me for a day
I thought you were someone special

Gave you my heart

I’ll give it to someone—
I’ll give it to someone—

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
You gave it away

I’ll give it to someone—
I’ll give it to someone—”

One of the few Christmas pop songs I actually like.

Gremlins…

“With its Christmas lights and dusting of snow, Kingston Falls is an idyllic small town–until the gremlins take over.

A father returns from Chinatown with an unusual pet, a Mogwai–a gift for his son. The rules are simple: Keep your Mogwai away from water, bright lights and, most importantly, never–never–feed him after midnight. But the rules are inadvertently broken, and the consequences multiply at an alarming rate.”
