Christmas Music That Doesn't Suck

So Robert Earl Keene's "Merry Christmas From the Family" has yet to be displaced from my personal #1 spot, so I'm not even going to address that here.  What's been great is a surprise challenger for spot #2, Glossary's new Christmas offering listed below my usual #2 favorite, Sharon Jones "Ain't No Chimneys In The Projects." I may have to split the spot this year.  There's really no way to compare them- completely different sounds, completely different moods, but they're all great. 

Here's Sharon, solving one of childhood's greatest mysteries for us.  Just how does Santa fit down the chimney with all those toys?  Oh wait...I forgot:

 And Glossary's Joey Kneiser, with Bingham Barnes on the bells:

Merry Christmas!

The fireplace dvd/screensaver/whatever is great, as is Bingham's dapper scarf.  I tried to find one (the fire, not the scarf) but they all looked faker than suntanned snow, or had something else wrong with them.  Some of them just looked shifty-eyed.  I never knew fireplace screensavers could look shifty-eyed before.  Thanks, Glossary and Sharon, and Merry Christmas.
