Merry Christmas (I Don't Want To Fight Tonight)


First of all, what Frank said. Second of all, 'tis the season of giving, and I just wanted to share some of my personal favourite Christmas albums with you guys, since I have gotten a few requests for recommendations. There's a few modern indie favourites, and a few essential classics. Some are best enjoyed alone fixing sandwiches with a few too many rum nogs, and others better suited for yuletide gatherings with friends and family. However you spend the holiday season, hopefully there's a soundtrack here for it. This will only be up for the next few days, so grab whatever you want now before it disappears into the abyss. Note: I decided to leave this up anyway, I just removed all the links to avoid any copyright issues. I left the Bright Eyes album, since it's already up on here and must be enjoyed at least once each month all year long, haha. Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!
