Hope this finds you warm and relaxed, holiday errands complete for the day.
I have a confession to make. I love Christmas music. I know, I know, everyone has a Christmas album and it can get redundant at best. Lucky for you, I have a ton 0f it and have dedicated my listening time for the last two weeks sorting through it for you.
