71 minutes, 91.7 MB. every year my collection of holiday music gets more and more ridiculous. i love it all: holiday standards, country tunes - if it's about christmas or december holidays i'm all over it. nothing on this earth tops darlene love belting out "they're signing deck the halls - but it's not like christmas at all." my family has never been religious but lately i've been going to mass every year just to hear the music, and handel's messiah is the best part of the holidays by far. can't. get. enough.
there's no theme here other than holidays. i could have put all the depressing songs on one mix but then 1)i'd have to listen to "blue christmas" eight times and 2)i wouldn't ever want to listen to the depressing mix. i have enough music left for about four more discs which may be posted here at some point - trades requests are welcome. happy holidays everyone.

I'm sorry but I just can't listen to or post a holiday mix until after Thanksgiving. But this one looks so good that I'll download now and listen in a couple weeks.

Seeing all these familiar faces is a great holiday present for all of us. Love teh 15-17 run, and of course Vince Guaraldi is the king of Christmas, topped off with Johnny & June!

A nice one. The Flaming Lips song is very cool.
