The 12 Days of Christmas: Hipster Edition!!

I don’t remember how this all started, but my coworkers and I were discussing last week what a hipster version of “The 12 Days of Christmas” would be like. You all know what a hipster is, right? They’re those urban 20/30-somethings that “value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter.” (Urban Dictionary) Furthermore, they’ve got a unique fashion sense that can basically be summed up in two words: Urban Outfitters. I love to tease the hipsters, but the truth is that my girlfriend and I basically are hipsters… or “hipster-lite” as she just suggested. Anyway, it took us a few days, but we were able to come up with a truly hipster-fied version of this classic Christmas carol.

The Twelve Days of (Hipster) Christmas

On the Twelfth day of Christmas, Brooklyn gave to me:
Twelve Vintage Cameras,
Eleven Cups of Coffee,
Ten Indie Movies,
Nine Vegan Dishes,
Eight Thick-Rimmed Glasses,
Seven Waxed Mustaches,
Six Vinyl Records,
FIVE P-B-Rs!!!
Four Skinny Jeans,
Three Plaid Scarves,
Two Fixie Bikes,
And a Hipster in a Deep V! 

I can’t decide whether Hipsters will love this because it’s so ironic and nostalgic, or hate it because this song is just too mainstream.
