The Best Collection of Christmas Songs - Ever?

I get several discs mailed to me every week for publicity purposes. I try to listen to as many as I possibly can. At this time of the year I start getting Christmas collections and holiday mixes. And (as I admitted just a couple days ago,) I'm not the biggest fan of this festive season.

Coal in my stocking, solid rock in my soul? I guess I just don't get caught up in the holidays so much. That being said, I love watching kids open their presents and I do like listening to quality holiday classics. (Lord - not those annoying radio stations that are only playing holiday songs from Thanksgiving to New Years! Save me.) By classics - I mean the best tracks. Have I got a CD for you.... It's a NOW series Christmas!

I got all three of these in the series mailed to me. You can find them in stores or at a reduced price online. Here's just a sample, but there's so much more...
