Merry Christmas!

To those who celebrate, have a very merry Christmas. Since many other traditions have a celebration around now (solstice, Kwanzaa, Festivus, etc.), I wish you happy those-things as well.  Me, I’m celebrating the holiday with family, food and drink. Lots of all three, in fact.

Below is the full version of The Beatles‘ “Christmastime is Here Again.” An abbreviated version found its way onto one of the CDEPs released in conjunction with their Anthology series, but this is (a pirated/bootlegged version of) the full version as it appeared on their 1967 flexidisc sent to members of their fan club.
