In December 2005, I made "A Fairly Merry Indie X-Mix" ( as a present for friends and coworkers. Finally, I made a sequel. I'm still avoiding covers of traditional Christmas songs (because almost all of them drive me crazy). Overall, this is more downbeat than you'd expect, given how obnoxiously manic Christmas music usually is. But, it's got a nice mix of fun songs, sad songs and rock songs.
