Wednesday is "25 Days of Christmas Series" Day.

25 Days of Christmas Series: the writer of the ruby Turtle hippie times (aka me!) composes the majority of 25 blog posts during the month of December to celebrate all things Christmas including but not limited to favorite music, traditions, events, commercials, movies, and miracles and has been a tradition on the blog since its inception.

Happy December y'all!!

I find it fitting that today begins my annual 25 Days of Christmas Series on a Wednesday so I could give a quick explanation of what it is.

So let's get our series started off with my personal playlist of songs that I've been working on for almost five years now for Christmas. There are two major holes in it. I need more country Christmas and more non-secular Christmas songs. So please feel free to drop suggestions!!

I have a playlist too. Many similarities to your list, but I think you have to have some Harry Connick Jr. mixed in.
