18 Oddball Christmas Songs For People Sick of “Jingle Bells”

If you're already sick of the Christmas standards being piped through the speaker systems of every single store you walk into this time of year, I recommend cleansing your palate with these weirder holiday options.

14 Things You Need to Know About the Greatest Christmas Movie Ever Made: ‘Santa Claus Conquers the Martians’

I get why people like A Christmas Story so much--it's a classic for a reason--but for Chrissakes, there's not a single alien in that movie. So how good can it really be?
