Winter Wonderland in March? You bet!

Okay, I admit it. I’m a bit of a holiday music freak. I just love it! I often lament the fact that there’s such a small window of time each year where I can wholeheartedly indulge in my passion. But, I’ve come to the realization that many songs get undeservedly stuck with the dreaded “Christmas music” tag. Once December 25th rolls around they are put away till next December (well, November really!). But hey folks, winter is with us all the way to March 20! So, we have every right to be singing and listening to these songs for several MONTHS! And as a lover of this music, I have two words to say about that: “Yahoo!” and “Yippee-i-o-ki-ay!” Here are some of the songs I’m talking about – with nary a mention of Christmas and what CD’s you can find these songs in:
