We are mere weeks away from Christmas, which means the radio is already teeming with those classic Christmas tunes. From Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas" to the more traditional "Little Drummer Boy," these songs are universally recognizable and dare I say it? Universally loved.
Listen, I am 100 percent Jewish– and I cannot get enough of Christmas music. It gets me in the mood to celebrate, and I don't care who knows it. Sure, this may mean I am a mere pawn in the game that is capitalism, but I don't care. I love Christmas music.
"Baby, It's Cold Outside" is a personal favorite, especially since it's not the creepy song we all once thought it was. It's actually a sex-positive, feminist duet. And you can listen to 50 different versions of it on my Spotify playlist, "Baby, It's Very Cold Outside." But I digress.
People are using the #ModernizeACarol hashtag to bring some classic Christmas carols into the 21st century.And a lot of them are pretty funny! Definitely funnier than this painful scene from Love Actually (don't @ me).

iPhones ringThis one works perfectly! Except for the fact that iPhones never ring because no one actually calls each other anymore.
