Music Scripture doesn't say it be we know those angels were singing at the manger. And music has been the heart of Christmas ever since.

Yeah, "Holly" is an acquired taste. It's certainly not for me.

"Traditional Christmas" has been good from what I've heard today. Certainly some classics in there.

My favorite is Pops Christmas. Some very beautiful music in that playlist, and every year I get more and more into the older traditional hymns, instrumentals, and songs.

The only good Christmas channel on either service was Special Xmas on XM. After the merger last year, it was dropped from the line up and didn't make a return this year.
