My expanding holiday boxed set

For about the last twenty years I have set about collecting holiday music. Eleven years ago I compiled the best tunes into a two CD set. It has grown quite a bit since then, as I have uncovered a lot more great stuff.

Now it's time to share--at least a bit of it. While I can't share the actual music, I can share the playlist. So in case you're at all interested, here is my ever-expanding holiday boxed set:
