Lordy, Lordy, It's My Christmas Top Forty

christmas music

I've got a little thing for lists.  I'll throw anything in a list.  Top ten movies with a geographic location in the title, best songs written by a Canadian citizen while living in England, greatest top ten lists ever, you get the idea.

This is prime time for hanging with friends and family, so you really shouldn't be reading this.  Turn off the computer, will ya?  In case you are taking a few minutes out of your Christmas Eve to check things out @, here are my forty favourite Christmas songs.  Happy Christmas Eve, everyone.
