The holiday season is upon us which means the decorations come out and the songs commandeer our radio waves. Celebrate the new home owners in your life with this list of gift suggestions. Since the holidays are about spirit, I decided to mix things up and turn this list of gifts into a much loved Christmas song. Since 95% of all holiday songs were written before 1960 (excluding Mariah Carey's flawless 1994 hit), I felt like it was about time we got an update.
It's called "The 12 Days of Christmas, well ok I don't know where they get 12 from, so I'm going to stick to 8 because that's all I can think of right now"
♪♫ On the 8th day of Christmas a homeowner shall receive... ♫♪
