‘Tis the Season for Holiday Albums

Before y’all get too tired of listening to seasonal tunes, let us plug a few festive records that offer a burst of holiday cheer. Best enjoyed in high spirits.

Jingle Cats
“The perfect way to annoy your coworkers during the holidays.” — Glynnis

The Singing Saw at Christmastime – Julian Koster
“Best listened to when taking a walk outside in the snow!” — Daniella

A Very Special Christmas 3 – Various Artists
“I’m normally circle pitting around the Christmas tree while playing this record.” — Keith

A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector – Phil Spector
“I usually have this playing while decorating the tree.” — Pete

Can’t. Stop. The. Christmas. Music.

Serious question. After the holidays are over and done with, how long is it socially acceptable to play Christmas music? Sometimes it’s really hard for me to put down the Mannheim Steamroller. And the Nat King Cole. And the Bublé. To be sure, holiday classics are difficult to say goodbye to – BUT I really don’t want to get a bad rep of being a holiday nut.

This is a serious problem, so please help by responding to the poll.
