Thank you so much for putting together your compilation for 2013. They get played so much every year here in Manchester. A big part of Christmas. Keep up the good work and Happy Christmas.

@Jerry Lee and LakerCrazy,

Glad to do it! I think this one's a little mellower. I was going to put in a few more uptempo songs, but I thought the quiet mood was ultimately fitting for an Xmas music mix.
