Some of my favorite "holiday"/seasonal tunes (with a little narrative)...

Like many members of this online community, I'm somehwat of a music freak. I've worked in the media (ad, p.r., journalism, etc.; corporate, political, non-profits/community org's, etc.) and tech-related sectors my entire life; but a significant portion of the work that I've done in those fields, as far as the music/entertainment industry is concerned, has been for little or no compensation (although there were more than just a few exceptions to this last statement).
