It's been a tradition of this blog to play the Pogues' Fairy Tale of New York at Christmas time.
The song is not only a fine, traditional, inspirational, Christmassy tune, but also a story of optimism and hope, good intentions and failure, and human frailty. And a necessary reminder of working-class struggles to a consumer class that would rather not consider them.
Have a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones, however flawed they (or you) may be.
