* UPDATE: The young man took his own life about a week ago, but his body was just discovered last night. Peace and courage to his family and friends.
Even those chipper fellows the Everly Brothers knew that "Christmas Eve Can Kill You."
Still, good riddance, 2016, and take a few authoritarian-imperialist-capitalist assholes with you. Even an aristocrat like Lord Tennyson could write a line like "Ring out false pride in place and blood" and mean it. Sadly, the beautiful rendition of "Ring Out, Wild Bells" below omits that whole stanza (as did Charles Gounod in his choral setting).
