It's the first of December and even the holiday holdouts have to agree that Christmastime is officially here.
It may be 70 degrees out today but that shouldn't stop anyone from getting into the holiday spirit and enjoying some shopping, Christmas music and throwing on that worn out "Christmas Vacation" DVD.
As a kid, one of the albums I started listening to immediately after Thanksgiving is Burl Ives' classic "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas" and I still love it to this day. To this day I am still able to name every song on the album just based on the opening chords.
In honor of the arrival of December, today's song is the title track off Ives' classic Christmas album, "A Holly Jolly Christmas."
