Patton Oswalt explains “The Christmas Shoes”

All this month, we’ve been counting down the days to Christmas with some great Yuletide carols. Christmas songs are tricky because although there are some fantastic ones, there’s a lot of holiday dreck. And what pray tell is the worst Christmas song of them all? It’s a little number called “The Christmas Shoes” by Christian rock band NewSong. If you’ve heard it, you know it’s the most cloying, depressing, and just downright evil song ever recorded. I can’t begin to describe the terribleness of this song, so I’ll let Paton Oswalt make the case against it.

As a special bonus, here’s comedy duo Hard & Phirm’s parody of “The Christmas Shoes” called “She Named The Pony Jesus.”
