On A Very She & Him Christmas, professionally adorkable New Girl star Zooey Deschanel reunites with Portland folkie M. Ward, this time wrapped in holly and (mostly) good cheer.

And their take on the Beach Boys' ''Christmas Day,'' with its gingerbread-spicy surf licks, is sweet enough to cure an eggnog hangover. B
