  1. Great list! I like Christmas music, but I get sick of the same old versions all the time. I see some really great bands on hear that I’m super excited to listen to. Thanks!

  2. I do my best to avoid Christmas music most of the time. I love when it is less common. One of my favs is “I Believe In Father Christmas” – Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Definitely not on most play lists! :)
