I’ve always assumed a “Boston Christmas” involves disgusting CLAM CHOWDAH, endless groaning about the great Tom Brady, and just the slightest tinge of racism, but I might be wrong. At least that’s not the way Irish punks Dropkick Murphys paint their hometown in the holiday-heavy music video for “The Season’s Upon Us,” from their upcoming album, Signed and Sealed in Blood. Men set up wreaths while smoking cigarettes, women take licks from the same ice cream cone, children play pranks involving turds, and eggnog is spiked and everyone gets drunk. Even the sh*t-giving kids, probably.
The Boston Christmas thing honestly doesn’t seem so bad anymore…unless Tommy from Quiznee is invited.
