In my family, tradition dictates that the Christmas season kicks off with listening to Christmas music on the way home from wherever we celebrated Thanksgiving. I have nearly 200 Christmas songs in my music collection so I don’t always listen to the same ones repeatedly, but I get tired of most holiday songs by about December 15. Last year, however, there were 16 songs that I still liked when Christmas Eve rolled around.

You can hear most of my Christmas Eve soundtrack at playlist.com: Christmas Eve Playlist 2010. Songs that were unavailable there are linked on YouTube.
