X-Mas Turkey Thurs.

Why is it X-massy? Cultural appropriation.
Christmas and New Year texts were associated with the tune from as early as 1686, and by the 19th century almost every printed collection of Christmas carols included some version of words and music together, most of them ending with the refrain "On Christmas Day in the morning".
Here's a 13-yr. old gobbler. Probably the first time anything performed by boring Bobby Zimmerman has appeared here.
