description:
I am one of those annoying folks who absolutely adore Christmas music & I have a disgusting amount of it on CD, Cassette & Vinyl. I love pulling it out at the beginning of November & peeking around to see what goodies I may have passed up in the previous years.

This is the seventh annual Xmas Mix I've put together to accompany my Christmas cards. The challenge is always in finding something new ... something you don't hear every time you walk into a mall or turn on the radio in your car. There are only a finite number of original Xmas songs out there, but ... some versions are better than others & I always try to make sure that I don't repeat the same version from Xmas-Mixes-Past.

This year the holidays have got me wiped & it's all I can do to get in my car at the end of my sometimes 14 hour workdays & drive the 35 minute commute home. More than once I've contemplated camping out in my car, just because I'm not sure I've got the energy to make it all the way with my eyes open.

Listening to this mix while enjoying a bottle of Shiraz is a good cure for the holidays-in-retail-blahs.

Thank the Goddess for Shiraz.

Merry Zzzzzzmas to all. I hope you sleep well.

+4 for Holly Golightly alone. I love her song "Christmas Solo". So Many songs I'll have to check out here. Tom Hank's wife's name is Rita Wilson, non? I'm curious to see the six mixes that precede this one. Great collection. Have a very merry Christmas, LustyKazoo.
