the santa cause

I’m a big fan of holiday music. It makes me happy. I enjoy finding fresh tunes, but mostly, I enjoy the classics: Dean Martin’s Making Spirits Bright, George Winston’s December and Verve’s Very Best of Christmas Jazz are highly recommended. As much as I like the tunes of Festivus, I do love to make mixtapes, perhaps holiday mixtapes most of all. Well, only one week remains until Christmas arrives, so I couldn’t put it off any longer. Here is the Whole Brevity Thing Christmas Mix for 2008. Actually because there was too much goodness to share, it would have been a mess if I put it all together into one mix.
