Christmas Songs You Probably never heard Spotify Playlist  

Around my house for Christmas, at my wife and children's dismay, Bob Dylan's Christmas In The Heart plays at ear bleeding volume on infinite repeat for atlast 7 days straight. It's the only Christmas album I enjoy listening to besides an occasional spin of the GLAD Acapella project, which isn't really a Christmas album, but my parents listened to it like I listen to Bob Dylan's so it's like stuck deep in the rescues of my dusty old Christmas Spirit.

My way of dealing with things is strange to some, I know, but this film saved me and my wife's marriage. So, I have to question the critics of my own life. My wife and I are more content in one another than we ever dreamed possible. I didn't do it for that reason.. I figured there was absolutely no hope in that direction.
