TMBG Shirt #52: Happy Holidays

Check it out, people. It's a shirt for every week of the year. Fifty-two shirts and still going!

It's the TMBG holiday shirt. On the front are Flansburgh (left) and Linnell flanking a traditional Christmas tree, under which are two smallish gifts that are presumably from John to John and from John to John. The entire scene is depicted in a festive red and green.
TMBG joined Harry Shearer and Judith Owen's Holiday Sing-Along at The Canal Room in New York City on December 15, 2006. They performed "Santa's Beard" for the first time in about a decade.
The back of the shirt reads, "Happy Chanukah from They Might Be Giants".
What, no Kwanza?
Here's TMBG's Chanukah song, "Feast of Lights", the other holiday tune that They performed at the Sing-Along. It was the first time that it was ever performed in front of an audience, for which John Linnell tweaked the lyrics a bit.

MP3 of the Week:
Judy Is Your Viet Nam

Originally written as a Christmas song, this was performed at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ on 7/30/11.
