Ah Jiminy Christmas! I've been remiss in performing one of my most beloved holiday traditions: the posting of my holiday mix. I listened to it myself today for the first time this season, and honestly, I'd forgotten how much I like it. I made it as a statement about war, peace, life, death, and the passage of time, and was surprised to find I was actually moved by some of the selections. Because you know what? There's some actually poignant stuff going on here. Anyway, I hope you're moved too, or at the very least, enjoy the polka interlude (because yeah, there's also some not poignant stuff).
