"TRY SMILING, IT'S CHRISTMAS PART 2": THE WEEKEND MIX IN TWO PARTS
I'm trying. Really trying to feel Christmas. It's just not happening...yet. I haven't given up. There's always one magical moment that creeps up on me and shakes up my heart, usually a classic Christmas tune or some human interest story about a collie and a well. I still have a few days.
As promised, here is the second part of the holiday "WEEKEND MIX."
"TRY SMILING, IT'S CHRISTMAS: PART 2"
These tunes don't rock, they just "rock," and are sure to make any Christmas Eve feel like a Walton Family Christmas. Don't be afraid, it's hip to soften up for the holidays.
