Sunday Soundtrack: The Christmas Scoop

My children will be the first to tell you that I draw a hard line when it comes to the Christmas season. I have been known to stop dead in the aisle at Target and shriek if I spot Christmas items on display before the trick-or-treaters have come by, and we always wait until after the turkey coma and football before even thinking about Saint Nick or red and green home decor. But since I have a Christmas book coming out this Tuesday, I’m bending my own rules. Here’s a ten song playlist especially chosen to complement the feel of The Christmas Scoop. Happy listening!
