Friday Fixation: Holiday Music

I'm sure I've never pre-ordered a Christmas album before... But I wanted this one from the moment I saw the email from She & Him back in early October. I felt like I had to wait until after Halloween to talk about it, but now that Halloween is past - I had to share.

It came out Oct. 24 (I finally gave in and ordered it back on Oct. 17.) The cover just screams vintage christmas album, the vinyl is red - and the songs are beautiful.

Not sure there is much more I could have wanted from this. Oh, and it came with free She & Him wrapping paper. Swoon.

Here's a tune to get you in the mood...

We've already listened to it twice. We also just bought the new Tom Waits on Vinyl. It comes with the CD as well. Maybe I'll make Jonny write a guest blog post on it!

Yes, Jon needs to write a blog post. We got this too, but the policy I grew up with was that we have to wait until doing the Thanksgiving dishes to really get into xmas music.
