Yesterday we learned what Montana's top Christmas song was and while it's a little boring, it didn't make the list of annoying Christmas songs, so that's good.

A Christmas song I loved as a kid, but I think other people thought was annoying, was "The 12 Days of Christmas." The variations on the song were as enjoyable to me as the original.

Isn't that part of the holidays, too? Taking a tradition and putting your spin on it? My aunt and uncle have changed the words to "The Night Before Christmas" for their annual Christmas Newsletter for years.

In light of having fun with holiday tradition (and Christmas Carols) here's a "Missoula" version of "The 12 Days of Christmas."
