Twelve Months of Christmas Halloween Special

Halloween is a SCARY time of year, right kids? Yet it seems that the scariest time of year is Christmas! Think about it: how many kids do you see cry at the silly Halloween decorations we put up? Do they lose it and have childhood trauma over pumpkins? Now, how many kids do you see cry in frantic terror at the stranger posing as Santa? I see more cries, more screams, come Christmas time.

Which makes Halloween a perfect day to celebrate Christmas! And, surprisingly, there are some great Christmas tracks out there that qualify for a nice Halloween Special! And I compiled those tracks into a very special podcast, hosted by yours truly!

Play it after dark, but keep the lights on!!!

The Twelve Months of Christmas Halloween Special

(Rated T for teen. There might be a naughty word or two in one or two of the tracks.)

And I can't promise this will be an annual tradition...there's not too many Halloween Christmas songs out there!

So far I just recognize the Type O song near the beginning - what else is on this podcast?

You've done such a neat job picking this out!

I was reluctant to post the playlist because I thought some of the tracks may be frowned upon by certain record companies! For the most part, I tend to avoid newer songs that the RIAA may be policing!

But I will give it a try in the comments...

Type O Negative-Red Water (Christmas Mourning) (October Rust)
