2013 Christmas Playlist

Last year, I shared with you one of my favorite (and longest running) holiday traditions - an annual music CD.  With the advent of iPods and music-playing phones, it has morphed into more of a playlist, but it's still just as fun.  It's also interesting to see how my musical tastes have varied over the years.  We recently attended A Madison Symphony Christmas and a few of this year's songs were those we heard played at the event.  I always try to include new and modern songs along with standard, traditional favorites.  It's a nice mix to have playing while you bake cookies or when opening gifts.
