Best Christmas Mix Ever

Published: December 17, 2008

My family is big on the Christmas season - choosing a tree, cookie decorating, first sledding tracks, etc. Vermont makes the cheer prettycontagious, with blankets of snow and a multitude of Rockwellian scenes. The frustrating part for me has been locating the perfect soundtrack. I've purchased anembarrassingnumber of really bad holiday compact discs. Each time I purchase a new one I hold out that it will have classic tunes, a jolly spirit, and perhaps some interesting newbies. Sadly they seem to be rife with absolutely annoying tracks (Wham, Kenny G, Chipmunks).

This year I decided to stop looking elsewhere and make acompilationof the best within my collection. Below is that mix. I think I've put together something that has the righttemperament -upbeat but not grating. Feel free to let me know what is missing.
