A Christmas carol for the modern bohemian!
Thick-framed eyewear and skinny jeans abound in this refreshing rendition of the classic Twelve Days of Christmas carol that finally answers the age old question: What do you give a hipster for Christmas? Could it be a potlatch near the Salish Sea? Or maybe three flannel shirts? One thing is for sure, if it’s a Northwest Christmas, you can count on at least five weeks of rain! Bearded and straight-banged locals and non-locals alike will revel in the dynamic depictions of coffee shops, pods of orcas, and other familiar scenes in this happenin’ holiday update. It’s sure to put a smile on any beatnik’s face, especially since they heard it first, before it went all mainstream.
