On the Right Side of Christmas 2021

As usual, I'm struggling to think of anything
meaningful to say about Christmas (or
Christmas music). Though, also as usual, I'm always a little surprised by how many artists have put out some sort of holiday themed songs - I had no idea that Nina Simone recorded Children Go Where I Send Thee until a couple of months ago.  It also seems that a lot fewer folks have a dismissive attitude towards Christmas music.  Or maybe I just talk to even fewer people than I used to about their musical tastes. :) I've also re-upped all the previous Christmas compilations.
