It’s the most wonderful time of the year….
time for CHRISTMAS MUSIC!!!!
I admit it. I’m a Christmas Music obsessive-compulsive. I have hundreds, if not thousands, of Christmas songs on my iPod. Every year, I pick 20 or so songs and create a mixed CD to give to friends and family. They tell me that they wait each year for my compilation. So, here is 2007’s version.

Shrew’s playlist has more obscure songs, so I couldn’t find any on YouTube. You’ll just have to ferret out those on your own. I reckon iTunes is good place to start.
These are some great new finds from Shrew, and I’m always looking for more.
So, how about you? Give me your Christmas song playlist. Twenty of your favorites that you like to share.
