Advent song for December 11

I’m late! WordPress is clever enough to let me post in advance and specify a later publication time, but not the reverse. I blame working from home: my routine was all shot.

Anyway, we’re going to stick with my far-off university days (Essex, in case you were wondering) and have the Spice Girls’ rendition of Christmas Wrapping, which if memory serves correctly was the b-side of one of their Christmas singles. I would have liked to include one of the singles themselves, but they are not particularly Christmassy, and anyway this is fun, with its updated references to Tesco and cling film. Good old The Spice Girls. There doesn’t seem to be a real video, but this is the weirdest liveliest of the fan-created offerings on YouTube.
