The Holiday Shift

The Holiday Shift is just a little glimpse into how Hot Breakfast! sees the holidays. Sometimes, they bring out the worst in us; we behave badly (“Holiday Shift”) and resent having to shop for presents (“Don’t Get Me Anything”). Sometimes, they fill us with joy, whether we’re just driving around with a good friend in need (“I’ll Be Home On Christmas Eve”) or letting the sight of snowflakes fill us with joy (“Everyone’s A Child When It Snows”).

And so we head into 2017 filled with anxiety, fear, and not a little hope, knowing that New Year’s Day changes nothing but the calendar date (“Clean Blank Slate”), we remind each other – and ourselves – that this season really can be a time of renewal, of love and respect for each other, and peace on earth – no matter what we do or don’t believe (“Christmas Is For Believers”).

And oh yeah – don’t be like us. Get your shopping done early (“An Idiot For Christmas”).
