KillgoreTrout On December - 21 - 2013

Well folks, ‘Tis the Season once again! I would like to wish all of you a joyful and rich Holiday Season spent with family and friends. This IS a special time of the year when people are a little more kind, and compassionate. I’m not the first to say..”Wouldn’t it be nice if this lasted all year long.” For many, I think it does. For others,not so much.

In any case, this weekend’s music thread is dedicated to the holiday. Post your favorite holiday/Christmas,
Kwanzaa…etc, songs. Songs of good will and peace. And, don’t forget to smile while doing so. ;)

Nat King Cole – The Christmas Song

Imelda May – Wexford Carol

So this is Christmas- John Lennon

Bing Crosby & David Bowie – Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy

Mannheim Steamroller – ‘Joy To The World’

Once a wander, working vagabond, fellow traveler on this 3rd stone from the sun. Hurtling through space and time. Lover of books (especially the classics), all kinds of books from novels, poetry, essay collections, fiction and nonfiction and a big Kurt Vonnegut fan. I am a secular humanist and technically an atheist.....Taoist.

    I wonder if I’m the only person who still has trouble listening to “And so this is Christmas.” It’s just too sad for me.
