HuffPost Comedy's Countdown To Christmas: Ringo Remembers Christmas 1979 (VIDEO)

The holiday season is in full swing, which means there is an abundance of seasonally-themed videos and sketches to while away the hours at work (you have stopped actually working until the New Year, right?). So we decided we'd count down the days until Christmas with the videos that are keeping us toasty warm.

Today we take a look back at the year 1979 with the help of the great Peter Serafinowicz (Shaun of the Dead). We bet you didn't know that when Paul McCartney set out to write a Christmas song, his idea was initially a lot more bawdy than "Wonderful Christmas Time."
