The family is a nerve-shattering struggle around the holidays, so why not make light of it and live longer?
Despite the title of the song, Kristin Key puts a bluesy bluegrass spin on “Hate My Family at Christmas.” Everything comes out jokey and jolly with banjo!
Krismas Kookies also barbershop quintets more bluesy bluegrass with “Dysfunctional Family Christmas.” Everyone (even the dog) is annoying, but how bad can it be? There’s apple pie!
Nick Sanabria’s “Dysfunctional Family Christmas” gets violent with slapping and breaking dishes and slamming doors. But the easy listening carol music undercuts the blows with merry irony.
Copperlily blows off the roof with a pop (country) celebration in “My Family’s Crazy (At Christmas Time).” The foibles are party favors in this house.
