Christmas is a beautiful time of year, and it's made even more so by the music of the holiday season, which can range from the heartwarming to the inspirational to the hilarious.

Well, my good people, here we are. It's now nearly 3:00 a.m. on Christmas Eve here in Bim and I still have a lot to do before I turn in for the night. But that's all part of the fun of the season.
So, Merry Christmas again, be safe out there, enjoy your time with friends and family and si dieu veux, I'll hear you all next week.
