Here it is Christmas…

This is the bad boy that started them all.

Today I present to you the first holiday mix I made from 2006.  It may be my favorite of the mixes.  This was the year I decided to give into Christmas and the winter season.  Instead of being grumpy all the time and hating on Christmas songs everywhere I went, I decided to find my own style of music and found the wonder in songs that aren’t necessarily “holiday” music, but have that great wintery feeling to them.  I also spent hours digging through my record collection searching for songs with certain words in the title.  I have such a variety of records that sometimes I don’t even know what is on them, I just bought them for the cover (see Harmonicats).  I miss doing such things.  I now go through the same practice, but on the computer via Google.  It’s not quite the same feeling.

It should also be said that, although I’m agnostic, songs about God/Jesus fascinate and crack me up.

I’m also a big lover of Doris Day, so just deal with it.

Anyways, you can get the playlist here (they may not transfer into iTunes in the right order – I don’t know why).  I hope you enjoy.

I also found some videos for a couple of the songs.  Enjoy…
