The Seventh Annual Musical Advent Calendar
It's hard to believe this is the seventh year, and it's also hard to believe that it's already December.
This year, we kick off with a tune from Sufjan Stevens' "Silver and Gold," his second 5-CD Christmas extravaganza. For those who don't know the story, for Christmas each year Sufjan creates a CD of Christmas music for his family and friends - sometimes originals, sometimes odd versions of old classics, and sometimes heartfelt versions of tunes you know you've heard before but can't quite put your finger on.
This song, "Happy Karma Christmas," falls into the first category. Because of the dearth of record stores in Sacramento, I've yet to find the new set (actually it was released last year), so I may be resorting to Amazon sometime soon.
Day 1 - Sufjan Stevens, "Happy Karma Christmas."
