This Winter, my family will be spending Christmas in the Keys. Yeah, it's not your typical holiday setting, but I'm excited to abandon unwanted presents for sea creatures and shorts and warmth. And despite foregoing the holidays to go on holiday, there was no way I was going to discontinue my yearly mix. You know, for all you plebes staying behind this December.
Each year, I doubt being able to find twenty meaningful holiday songs, much less string them into something elegant. But somehow (see: hours of searching and arranging) I think I manage to pull this off each year. The 2012 mix features some tight female vocals, muted trumpet scat imitation, an avian anthem for the advent, and a brief PSA from everyone's favorite big-shoed dancer.
So here! Twenty wintry tunes, hand-picked from the deepest corners of the internet. Listen, share, and be merry. And please support any artists you like. Happy Winter. ♥
