Hot Glögg…and Other Delights (Christmas Mix 2010)

Each December for the last ten or so years, I've developed a tradition of making a holiday themed "mixtape". No actual cassettes are harmed, I always burn CD copies for friends and family and also make it available for download as a .zip file containing all the mp3s for use on your computer or iPod or whatever your medium of choice may be. Also, unlike some of my past Christmas mixes this one is pretty much G rated, so you don't have to worry about your little ones listening and then dropping the f-bomb in front of old Aunt Edna at the dinner table.

So, here is a shiny digital present to all my faithful Get Out North Idaho readers: my 2010 Christmas Mix. No, it doesn't actually have a lot to do with North Idaho, but this year I did manage to track down that wonderfully schmaltzy local classic "Christmas in the Northwest". Here you go, and as Devo says: "merry something to you."
