Christmas tunes

Okay, so we may not be getting a real tree this year (thanks for reassuring me that it doesn’t make me a Scrooge!), but we have been blasting the holiday tunes on repeat, so that must count for something on the Christmas spirit scale. I pride myself in my mean mix-making skills, and I must say I am especially proud of the Christmas CD that I made for the Peach and Pearl CD swap. I can’t send copies to everyone (well, I probably could, but I gots things to do, people), but if you’re interested in replicating it, here’s the list of songs with links to purchase them!
