Well, it’s the Christmas season.  It’s a time of prayer, family, shopping,  remembering others (do something for the less fortunate!), and frantic preparation.

It is also traffic suckage season, complicated by blogger mood disorder.  So, let’s try to recognize the season, as well as correct some of the suckage.  Enjoy the links, and have some Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

Larry has posted, “Tis the Season for Christmas Music. ”

We have been mentioned in the weekly FMJRA post at The Other McCain.

  • Those are some great songs, Matt. Thanks for the link.

    • You’re welcome Larry. I tried to find some Point of Grace for you, but I couldn’t come up with it.

      • There aren’t a lot of good videos out of them, especially of Christmas music. I am going to do some looking around and see if I can come up with something to post later today. I may have some Southern Gospel Christmas music also. I haven’t done something like this before, but it would be a good change.

        • You should. These link posts are time consuming, but fun. I like that they’re more personal, and I can share some things I really like. Others seem to like them as well. My post a few weeks ago with Rush videos had more comments than any in the history of the site.

          • I am working on the post now, as well as my Sunday link post. The music I am using is going to be very different than most of my readers are used to, but I hope they will watch the videos. These are some very good singers with a great message.

  • Thanks Matt.
    Have a wonderful observance of the Winter Solstice.

    • Well, I’ll just as soon celebrate Christmas! 😀

      You’re welcome Trestin. Keep up the good work.

  • Thanks for the link Matt. I always enjoy rummaging around looking for music vids to share.

    • It is fun, though sometimes frustrating. I’ve taken to using Bing’s video search. Sometimes, the YouTube isn’t all that cooperative.

      • I’ll give that a try. Thanks.

  • Matt, thank you so much for the linky goodness.

    Glad you liked the Brother Mario trailer as much as I did. I thought that was brilliant. Thanks again.

    • The Brothers Mario was excellent. I’ll post it over here in a while, I just wanted to give you the immediate traffic benefit of it.

  • Thanks for the link Matt! My wife and my mother have taken my boys to see TSO a few times and they loved it, I haven’t seen them. My oldest boy is a musician and he managed to get their autographs.

    • You’re welcome Steve. Here’s some perspective. TSO started as a side-project of the 80’s metal band Savatage. When grunge got popular, they went increasingly to TSO.

      You can hear some of the similarities here…

  • Your rock– thanks for the linky thingy- Mucho gracis–oh, I can wait on that one!

    • You’re welcome! De Nada! 😀

  • Thanks for the link! Your Daley Gator and Lonely Conservative links are incorrect, by the way. You sure do us all a solid. Link lists like this are surprisingly hard work.

    So thanks again.

  • What a great roundup! I’m going to have to come back later to listen to some of these wonderful musical moments.

    And thank for the link to my posting about Dean Martin’s “Silver Bells.”

    • Thanks, and you’re welcome!

  • HI Matt! Merry Christmas to you and yours, and all your readers!

    This is a great Seasonal post, and I love all the great video’s you found to Celebrate this fun Holiday! I will be watching them all at length later. I love TSA and Andy Williams Christmas and the others.
    I have been dusting off my Christmas CD’s to get further in the spirit.

    Thanks for linking me in this great roundup, and
    enjoy your weekend.
    We would all do well to remember the real reason for the season…..not to buy stuff and go further into debt, but to praise the Lord and honor his birth, the light of the world.

    • Thanks Bunni. Sad as it is, I’m dusting off Christmas LP’s.

      Well said about Christmas!

  • Strike that typo, I HATE the TSA, but Love the TSO…hee hee.

    Too many acronymns. the TSA would feel up Santa and all the reindeers, and I hope the Reindeers would leave them presents, the organic kind 😉

    • I’m glad you clarified Bunni. I thought that maybe you were sharing a bit too much about your personal life. 😀

  • Matt, thanks so much for the linky– much appreciated. I love the clever way you set up your Sunday links, interspersed with cool stuff.

    • It’s fun, I have to admit, and people tend to like it. It’s the most popular post of the week.

  • Thanks Matt. I’m actually enjoying the Christmas music this year. They usually over do it by starting it at Halloween, but I didn’t notice it so much this year for whatever reason.

    • Me too. I’m just more into it this year.

      You’re welcome, and thanks for publishing such thought provoking stuff.

  • Thank you so much for the link. I love the TSO. =)

    • I know what you mean about TSO. It’s like combining Christmas Carols with heavy metal. Can’t get much better than that.

  • thank u MATT!..the music is awesome!! ..and the linky luv is appreciated always!

    • Thanks Angel, and you’re welcome!

  • Thanks for the extra link, Matt. I do appreciate i.

    • No problem Larry. It’s a good post, and deserves some attention.

  • Thanks for the Christmas Cheer and the Merry Linky Love.

    • No problem Bob. Have a good one.

  • I really enjoyed listening to the awesome music!

    Thanks so much for the link.

    Merry Christmas!

    • You’re welcome, thanks, and same to you!
