Here it is just over a week away from Christmas. I still have resisted the temptation to play all holiday music although there are three tracks covering Winter (for Yule), Hanukkah and Christmas.
I'm warning you now, next week all bets are off.
Anywho, hope you enjoy the list this week. Gotta run, more stuff to do. Honestly, it's not like there aren't over 11 months to do all of this and frankly it's not a surprise that the season is upon us. But you know how things go...
