Putting together my latest holiday mix each year helps put me in the Christmas spirit, and it's been a lot of fun to learn as much as I have about the seasonal music scene. I'm indebted to the many holiday music enthusiasts who have shared their knowledge and expertise over the years via the internet. In November 2011, I started my own holiday music blog in order to share some of what I've learned over the past decade. The blog is called Bells Will Be Ringing, and it's also a useful way for me to share details about each year's release as well as general observatons about holiday music and seasonal ephemera.
I typically post new material each year beginning sometime in mid-November, and continue posting through the first week in January. The majority of my posts consist of background on each of the tracks from my latest holiday mix. The blog also features links to my favorite websites, and questions and comments are warmly encouraged. Please take a moment to check it out!
