Five Very Postconsumers Christmas Carols

Many, many years ago, we created a Postconsumers version of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas. We still love it to this day! In celebration of this season, we’ve transformed five more Christmas classics to help draw attention to the unfortunate consumer focus of the holiday season. Don’t take these as a “downer” on the season! Rather take them as they are intended, as a gentle (and we think fun) reminder to stay focused on the true meaning of the holiday spirit!

A Very Postconsumers Joy to the World

Postconsumers Joy to the World Carol

Joy to the World! The “Stuff” is Wrapped!

Let Earth receive the waste.

Let the storage unit prepare some room

To add another “thing”

To add another “thing”

To add, to add another “thing”

 

A Very Postconsumers Jingle Bells

Dashing through the snow, to the last minute Christmas sale

Through the traffic we go, sweating, stressed and pale

Plastic doo-dads are cheap, we must buy them up tonight

What fun we would be having if we’d stayed home and laughed all night

Oh, buy it now, buy it now, buy it while it’s hot

We’d realize this isn’t what Christmas is about if we gave it a minute of thought!

Oh, buy it now, buy it now, buy it while it’s hot

We’d realize this isn’t what Christmas is about if we gave it a minute of thought!

 

A Very Postconsumers Holly Jolly Christmas

Have a holly, jolly Christmas

It’s the marketing season of the year.

I don’t know, if there’ll be snow,

But everything’s on sale here!

Have a holly, jolly Christmas!

And when you walk down the street

Avoid eye contact, stay focused

And score the very last clearance item! Sweet!

 

A Very Postconsumers Good King Wenceslas

Good King Wenceslas looked out

On the clearance aisle,

Plastic doo-dads were spread out,

Seemingly by the mile.

Brightly shown the “price cut” sign,

Though the markup was high,

When a poor man came in sight,

Ready just to buy, buy, buy.

 

A Very Postconsumers Deck the Halls

A Postconsumers Deck the Halls

Deck the halls with plastic pine trees,

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Tis the season to buy all the things,

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Don we now our Christmas sweater,

Fa la la, la la la, la la la.

Christmas clearance is always better.

Fa la la la la, la la la la.
