I didn't grow up with Xmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, or any other winter-time holidays - I was raised in a cult, which should surprise very few people that read my shit - but as I've acclimated to the real world with all its mistletoe and trees and menorahs, I've developed a small (rather small, actually) affinity for the music of the season if it's done by the right folks. So I assembled a little package of holiday music, some of it by locals, some by indie rockers, even a couple by Twisted Sister. It'll be playing at the Christmas party over at my pad, hopefully you'll enjoy it as well...
