For a number of years, I worked in retail and each holiday season I was loath to play seasonal music at home given how saturated my ears would become at work. I have to say though, there is something about playing those special seasonal sounds that makes the holiday feel complete. There is a wealth of traditional and contemporary music available from DCPL, but if you’re in the mood for something a little off-beat, check out these offerings.
First off, let us remember that Christmas isn’t the only holiday celebrated at this time of year. Although Hanukkah is over for this year, you can still enjoy such music as A Taste of Chanukah and Happy Chanukah Songs. For Kwanzaa, which starts December 26th, you can listen to Kwanzaa Party! and The Kwanzaa Album.
…and on to Christmas specific music…
Christmas On the Border (blues and salsa)
Yule B’ Swingin’ (big band)
Surfin’ Christmas (surf stylings)
Mambo Santa Mambo (mambo beats!)
What are your favorite holiday sounds?
