Favorite Yuletide Videos: “Merry Christmas, Darling,” The Carpenters

Contrary to common gender stereotypes and social conventions, I’m pretty sure only a few things have ever broken my mother’s heart — one was the death of Karen Carpenter three months before I was born.

My dad — the rock fan and owner of a few hundred CDs, LPs, and mix tapes — loved her, too. I saw more than one person flinch sideways when they spotted the Carpenters’ Christmas Portrait in his collection (no fucks were given, big surprise).
