    If you’re like us, then you’re probably having a difficult time maintaining a Christmas Spirit during this pandemic.

    As a rule, I’m sort of a curmudgeon around the holidays anyway, but this year has me missing all of the things that I used to complain about. Hearing Christmas music over the mall P.A. system used to drive me bonkers and I would always mumble some indistinct threat under my breath, like “If I hear this song just once more, I’m gonna give Santa a piece of my mind.” Now, though, I haven’t gone out shopping at all and I miss the canned music. In an ordinary year, I’m ashamed to say that I would also complain about having almost all of my free time taken up by Christmas parties.

    Now, I miss the gatherings with friends that I used to take for granted. I miss people. I miss walking through crowded streets and bustling stores. So, in the interest of inspiring some semblance of Christmas Spirit, we’d like to present our all-time favorite Christmas album in its entirety, with a few extra tracks thrown in for good measure. Hey folks, I know it’s been a weird, and often depressing year, so here is just a drop in the bucket to induce some happiness and yes, a sense of gratitude.

    Merry Christmas Everyone! 

    Love,

    Tom and Heidy.
