My Christmas Red Kettle Playlist

I know. I know. In the past I've made a lot of noise about hating Christmas and have objected (strenuously objected) to Christmas music before Thanksgiving.  But this year, I have decided to try to relax a little. I'm going to try (TRY) to find the spirit of the season (even if I have to fake it a bit.)

In that course I have started playing Christmas songs, carols, hymns, and etc. at our Salvation Army Red Kettle. Below is my Christmas Red Kettle Playlist (at least my guitar playlist. I have another range of songs I use when I bring my horn). You may notice that are are some not-so Christmas type songs in there as well. Yeah, well... I like variety too.
