Big Freedia wonders, "Why so frosty?" this holiday season.

Two weeks from our bleak midwinter, Big Freedia is coming through for y'all. New Orleans' Queen of Bounce has just released an EP titled A Very Big Freedia Christmazz, and it serves up the booty-shakin' holiday cheer we all need. It includes the requisite covers — "'Twas The Night" and "Jingle Bell Rock" — rendered ridiculous and glorious, plus two originals ("So Frosty" and "Santa Is A Gay Man").

But it all opens with the greatest gift of all: "Rudy, The Big Booty Reindeer," in which we're blessed to substitute Big Freedia's airhorn-level bootybootybooty sample with rudyrudyrudy and this Christmazz miracle:

But Santa looked at Rudy's rear

And said, "Bring that ass over here

I need a break from all this work

Won't you teach me how to twerk?"

A Very Big Freedia Christmazz is out now via iTunes.
