2017: For Vulture I gave my list for the best “non-Christmas Christmas movies” (the ones that aren’t Die Hard).
2015: For The Saturday Evening Post I wrote a defense of Christmas music. (By the way, until December 4 you can get an entire year of the print Saturday Evening Post plus access to our archive going back to 1821 for only $9!)
Also in 2015: I created a playlist of some of my favorite Christmas songs (one of these days I’ll do a new list, with an embedded player).
2012: A post about the ever-growing scourge of people who are constantly on their phones at the holiday dinner table. (It’s even worse now.)
