Feliz Navidad Amigos!

Here some music to play as you open your gifts from Santa. It's a mix of some of my favorites and a couple of new ones from this year (Cepia from Ghostly). Mix up your traditional playlist a bit. New interpretations of old songs can breath new life into traditions! And some of course should be played unchanged.

MP3: Paul McCartney - Wonderful Christmastime (YSI)
MP3: Vince Guaraldi Trio - Linus and Lucy (YSI)
MP3: Cepia - Christmas Time Is Here (YSI)
MP3: Dean Martin - Jingle Bells (Dan The Automator Remix) (YSI)
MP3: Sufjan Stevens - Holy, Holy, etc... (YSI)
MP3: The Walkmen - The Christmas Party (YSI)
MP3: Erlend Oye - Last Christmas (YSI)
MP3: The Ramones - Merry Christmas (YSI)

Yeah, um. About those year end lists... How does that song go again?

Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,and auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne!!!!!!!
MP3: Tony De La Rosa - Auld Lang Syne (YSI)

And for those that don't know... La Caja China (literally the chinese box - don't know why it's called that) is a requirement for all Cuban Christmas eve dinners. The coals go over the pig and my family will general fight to get the first piece of chicharron. It is similar (but obviously easier) to digging a hole in the ground and cooking the pig in a pit.

For the turkey... deep fried is the only way to go!! (Dang why did I eat such a big lunch?!?!?!)
