1% JIHAD ADVENT PLAYLIST | 2014 ed.

Last year we introduced the 1%J ADVENT PLAYLIST, a wonderful and popular feature where we wrote about a Christmas song for every day of December in hopes of reconciling the simultaneously occurring but often contradictory spirits of the spiritual Advent season and the secular/commercial “holidays.”  I got bored halfway through and stopped posting anything after the 14th, but this year we’re back with a promise to make it all the way to Christmas Eve.  Listen and read along as you enter into this bizarre and often horrifying season of cheer.  The war on Christmas starts now.
