Yogi Yorgesson is a Swedish persona by some American guy in the '40s named Harry Stewart. Sadly, people let him get away with it.

2. "I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas," Gayla Peevey

When this song came out, the Oklahoma City Zoo started a fundraiser to "raise a hippo" for Gayla. It worked. But, Gayla later donated it to the zoo...because, like, a human shouldn't keep a hippo in a home.

3. "Christmas Sucks in San Francisco," The Downers

Besides the fact that Sufjan is a poetic genius, this song is, at it's core, 12 minutes of pure absurdity.

6. "The Fairy On The Christmas Tree," Gracie Fields

This song believes that "...every girl wants to be a fairy on a christmas tree." Speechless.

7. "Mary's Boy Child," Jim Reeves

Did Mary's boy child grow up into a man child, though?

8. "Misty," Kate Bush

While this song is less about Christmas and more about a winter snow dude, it echoes the upbeat "Frosty the Snowman." But, seriously, what else would you expect from Kate Bush?

9. "Santa Claus, That's Me!," Vernon Dalhart

It totally destroys any form of holiday cheer when a grown man sings about "Santy Claus" and "girlies and boys" the way he does.

10. "She Mistake Me For Santa Claus," MADD

Don't ever ask bae what she wants for Christmas, because she will rattle a list that includes "two color TV's" and a "stereo set."
