Christmas is undeniably one of the most joyous times of year. Take away the hordes of people stressing, complaining, and budgeting over buying Christmas gifts, and ignoring the lines of people returning items they wish they never got after Christmas, and you’ll see that what’s left is a happy time of year, where people love each other and spread the smiles.
Here’s a mixtape of a few Christmas songs, while Christmas songs are still acceptable: download.
With the exception of the track by ANR, I kept the weird out. All three Silent Nights, The Christmas Song, O Holy Night, and Christmas Canon (my personal favourite,) are exceptionally wonderful. Apologies for the ranging file formats and tags, my computer is in the shop. Enjoy.
