It’s the time of year when the Festival of Lights is in full swing, tree lightings and parades are happening on every corner, and the Coburg Cow is festively decorated on her perch.

We thought we’d contribute to the seasonal festivities with our own semi-original holiday tune featuring our favorite topic.

Without further ado, we’re bringing you CHStoday’s 12 Days of Charleston.
