Are you sick of the same boring Christmas songs year after year after year? I know I am! Why not shake it up with some of these lesser known, much weirder albums from decades past? No, they don’t have the charm of a Nat King Cole or a Mariah Carey singing the classics, and yes, they will probably leave you feeling disaffected and vaguely upset. But at least they’re different!
