This is obviously one for the i pod to create the atmos for Christmas decoration and pudding mixing. You remember that most Christmas music is utter drivel, but hey it is only once a year and there are enough tunes on here that, used selectively, create a great Christmas feeling and soon has small children dancing around and generally getting over excited. If Christmas for you is something calmer and less tinselly, this isn't for you. If you really love all the glitz and stuff, and you are the sort who watches "Love Actually" to help you get in the mood then this hits the spot. In our house this year the age range was 2-93 and everyone got something from this.
