The 12 days of Christmas will be cut short this year at just six days because Josh Groban saw his shadow and retreated back to where he resides all the other months of the year when people aren’t interested in hearing his Christmas songs.

I know it’s just a silly joke but I heard him today and I thought that you never hear Groban after January. And when it comes to singers who we most identify with Christmas I think we’ve lost something. We had Bing Crosby, Burl Yves, Nat King Cole and Jimmy Durante. Now we have Groban (who is good but let’s face it, he’s no Bing) and Mariah Carey.

We’re slipping.
