    Hola! It's time to play some Christmas music. Or other December holiday music album.

    The rules:

    1. Must be a full-length or EP Christmas or holiday album (not an album with one Xmas song)
    2. Don't play one you've already played this month
    3. Don't play one that someone else has already played today (pssst, it’s ok if you have no choice but please try not to :) )
    4. It’s okay to miss days or play catch up on days gone by, but please refrain from posting for days that haven’t happened yet. Wait until 12:01am eastern to post for that day’s theme.
    5. Have fun!

    1. A red Christmas record
    2. A record with Santa on the cover
    3. A record with the song “Joy to the World”

    Also, I wanted to give a shoutout to @Kris and @GritNGlitter for helping me with finalizing the themes. Couldn’t have done it without them. ❤️

    It’s officially Day 1 and I’m going to post because I’ll forget to during the day.

    Red record. I think this is the only red Christmas record I own.

    Great challenge. I don't think I have 25 Christmas albums, let alone a red one.

    Mark Kozelek Sings Christmas Carols. This is the record that made Charlie Brown seek out Lucy for psychiatric help. A pretty cover though, i must say. BE8DED4B-9D64-4520-9697-03CA142334ED.jpeg

    Sorry!

    Also, see rule 3. We want everyone to have fun so it’s ok to play something someone’s played if that’s all you got that matches the theme.

    Day 1 - Red Vinyl
    Various Artists - Soul Christmas

    Well...I sure hate to bend the rules on day one, but this is all I have for the category. The album description is white with red and green splatter. The red and green aren't very prominent, but I guess it's in there.

    Also; I'm excited, this is the first Christmas music I've spun or listened to this season.

    Also also, this is a great record.

    Thanks for running this @mcherry!

    Hope you don’t mind me posting again, but this thread is right in my wheelhouse. 3185FD06-9B00-4556-9825-C4811CF88D3A.jpeg

    Posting twice is fine but you should include in your post that it’s the second one so the album remains available for others to choose (who are trying to play by strict challenge rules).
