The Tolerable Christmas Playlist: Paul Simon, "Getting Ready For Christmas Day"

The first track off Paul Simon's really great 2011 album So Beautiful or So What is not really about Christmas, but uses Christmas as a shared cultural experience, as a way to tie together the disparate feelings Paul feels about aging and mortality... but, you know, in a fun way. Maybe someday I'll not just enjoy it, but fully understand it.
