The La Gringa Jesus-Free Holiday Mix:
The Anti-Christmas Album

I originally created this mix as a holiday gift for Book Stud a couple of years ago, but I thought I'd share with all of you folks who are Jewish or just plain hate the in-your-face Christian bias during the month of December. (And November. And parts of October.) Bah humbug, I say! Everyone knows that the holidays are supposed to be all about shopping, drinking until you pass out and dysfunctional family dynamics! It's time to bring that back!

I've added a few songs to the original mix. Since I can't post mp3 files here, the best I can do is share the playlist with y'all and point you to the Youtube video if I could find one. In some cases I was able to find the song posted online as a free downloadable mp3; I've indicated those with handy label that says (ha ha!) mp3 download (aren't I clever?). Enjoy!
