Another Side of Christmas: Part 1 - Merry


It's Christmas!!

As a lot of you well know, I turn into a proper child around Christmas, mainly about the awesome amount of music that I love to listen to for one month a year. I made two long mixes last year for me and my family, but I thought I'd not only upload them this year, but I have also made two more. Four CDs worth of Christmas music, including classics and hidden treasures. There are two 'Merry' discs, full of Christmas cheer and merriment. And two 'mellow' discs, which are more chilled and wistful. Plus, each part includes audio clips from Christmas TV and movies from all over the place. Enjoy, and have a great festive December.
