Sick of Christmas Music?

I love Christmas time, but even I get sick of hearing the same Christmas songs over and over again. By this time of year, I want to kill Paul McCartney for every writing, "Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Time". However, there is one Christmas CD I can NEVER get sick of listening to. I wanted to share with you my favorite Christmas mix, made by my friend Marcus, which makes for the best baking music ever. Every mix tape Marcus ever made I cherished like gold and listened to over and over until the tape warped. I love digital files because they can be listened to infinitely without damage and shared easily. I hope you enjoy. Thanks Marcus!

Why Gary Coleman? Why not?

Yes exactly - your radio alarm wakes you - they play Christmas songs. During breakfast the same. In the car the same. In work, everybody has some Christmas ring tone. You go shopping after work - guess what they play in the mall? :)
Some tips are interesting, i have to try at least Johnny Cash, I don't remember this song, on the other hand - Dreaming of a white Christmas? Once, twice and enough for one year :)
Take care and enjoy holiday
