Today is the first day of Hanukkah, tomorrow is the Winter Solstice and Sunday is Christmas. Shout out to everyone no matter which you celebrate or which you do not.

My Winter Holiday playlist contains Christmas songs, songs that mention winter-time themes (or seem to) and even a couple of songs that have been associated with the holiday season (albeit incorrectly):
1. The Wilderness of Manitoba released an three song of EP of Christmas Carols non-ironically called Three Carols. O Come, O Come Emmanuel is on the album which you can purchase and download by clicking the picture below.
3. I’m posting a link to a compilation called Alternative Rock X-mas which includes songs from everyone from The Decemberists to The Smithereens. It also includes the Alarm’s version of the John Lennon classic, Happy XMas (War is Over).
4. Finally, today we look ahead to the turning of the western Calendar from 2011 to 2012. New Years Day is from U2’s War Album. If you don’t have War in your collection rectify that right now by purchasing and downloading the album for $4.99 from Amazon – click the album cover below.
