My new "Attack of the 5'2" Woman" column is now up, featuring my top recommendations for holiday mood music. In retrospect, I suppose George Winston's December would be a good addition, although, despite the fact I love it, somehow it never finds its way to the CD player as often as the others.
Which brings me to a question:
What is your favorite seasonal music album, if you have one?
Thanks to agentxpndble for pointing out the Map of the Star Wars Galaxy.
And thanks to wildviolet4 for pointing out the Boston terrier love on the cover of the new Lands' End catalog:
"When night comes on with song and tale we pass the wintry hours;
By keeping up a cheerful heart we hope for better days.
We tend the cattle, sow the seed, give work unto the ploughers,
With patience wait till winter yields before the sun's fair rays.
And so the world goes round and round, and every time and season
With pleasure and with profit crowns the passage of the year,
And so through every time of life, to him who acts with reason,
The beauty of all things doth appear."
