My Christmas Song Playlist So Far

I like to think of the Christmas season as a musical time of year. My friends know that I like to spend a lot of time developing each year’s perfect Christmas song playlist to support my love of seasonal music. This year’s playlist is still in development (as you can see, I dumped the whole Jethro Tull Christmas Album into the mix), but this is what I have so far. What are your favorite Christmas/Winter Solstice/holiday songs?

    Hey guys, the “Ol” Captain” here, and as of right now I am the fan club president for this band, “The Royal Guardsmen”. We appreciate you devoting a little attention towards them, now that we’re trying to get the fan base kick started, since they’re actively playing and recording again. Obviously, they’re known for the big 3 hits they had, (Snoopy vs.Red Baron, Return of the Red Baron, and Snoopys Xmas) but they’re also good musicians and really nice guys, too. Like most bands, their best stuff isn’t whats played on the radio.
    If it’s cool with you, we’d love anyone interested to come on over to facebook and “like” The Royal Guardsmen, and from there you can stay current regarding news, tour dates and we even have semi monthly giveaways, our next being their new live cd, “Beaglemania!”
    I think I speak for the group when I say a great big thanks for this, have a great day, guys!
    Here’s the link, http://www.facebook.com/theroyalguardsmen , hope to see you there!
