While it isn’t straight technology…on this last Wednesday before Christmas, it is Straight No Chaser, an extremely talented a cappella group of which I am a major fan (their All I Want for Christmas album is my second favorite Christmas album after The Oak Ridge Boys’ 1982 Christmas, but that’s another post for another time.)

Here’s two of my favorite upbeat and amusing SNC holiday songs. If you’re not already in the holiday spirit, they are a nice boost:

The Christmas Can-Can

12 Days of Christmas (the original from 1998)


If you’ve never listened to SNC’s 12 Days of Christmas, in particular, this song guarantees you become a fan. It’s like no other rendition of the song you’ve heard before.

And while typically, we like to leave the singing to the professionals…wait…who are we kidding? Here at Airfoil, we like to show off our singing chops from time to time. For your viewing pleasure, here’s our amusing-in-its-own-right version of 12 Days of Christmas with a techy twist:

Happy Holidays!
