Here it is for all you kiddies out there that want a mix of new Christmas music. You can download any of the songs below or the Zip file at the end which contains each song. It does fit on a cd if you want to do that with it. I’m trying to highlight some of the songs and albums that I enjoy and also that are worth purchasing. I’ll be going over the albums for the next week or so and then as December starts I’ll go over songs that everyone should listen to for Christmas. Alot of Christmas albums go to very worthwhile charities, so think about that as you decide what Christmas music you should purchase.
