'Tis the Season to Be Poly: A Juniper Creek Christmas

AJuniperCreekChristmas What is the one thing that would make your Christmas season that much more awesome? What's that you say? An album of Christmas carols adapted and performed by our favorite Juniper Creek residents/characters from Big Love?

AJuniperCreekChristmas My friends, the CD that I'm currently listening to might just make me believe in God. And Santa. And Roman Grant aka The One True Prophet. And Alby's heterosexuality.

The CD in question is called A Juniper Creek Christmas. It features eight Prophet-centric songs with a certain I-live-on-a-compound-in-BFE-Utah-with-my-12-spouses vibe. The songs are performed by Roman Grant, Adaleen Grant, Cara Lynn Walker, Jodean Marquart, and the Juniper Creek Choral Society.

The tracks include, "We Three Wives," "Deck the Compound," and "Silent Wife." There's also a fantastic spoken word performance of Roman's version of "'Twas the Night Before Christmas," which includes this brilliant rendering of St. Nick's visit to the Big House:

"Then using a method I ought not disclose I gave him a nod, and up the chimney he rose. He sprang to his sleigh, to his team I gave a whistle, And they flew straight and true like this Prophet's epistle. But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight, 'Happy Christmas to all the righteous souls of Juniper Creek and to all a good night.'"

I imagine that if many of our Mormon friends were perturbed by Big Love in general to begin with, then the contents of this album won't help. That said, I chuckled heartily throughout and, okay, fine, I'm a bad person for that.

In more exciting news, HBO is going to provide me with a few AUTOGRAPHED copies of the VINYL version of this album to give away to our lovely readers! So look for that in the weeks ahead.

For now, you can download the songs at HBO.com or stream it from last.fm. we have a less abstract trailer for the fourth season of Big Love, which will premiere in just 17 days! EEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

Naomi

So fully awesome... thank you for this.

Suzy Q

LOVE this.

Laurie

I am supposed to be wrapping my fingers off right now but of course I'm on the Internet. And at first I was just going to stop and tell somebody I'ma let them finish but this was one of the best headlines of all time. And then I actually read the whole thing and now I have some Big Love-holiday style tunes to stream while I WRAP. God I love this show, and this idea just wins in so many weird, wonderful ways. Rock.

See THIS is why I love you all collectively and individually. ;)

Rhonda

Oh man...I want that free album so bad I would wrestle in jello for it.
