Madison, when I make a post on DRC, I have only a few minutes if I want to add something to it or change something in it. That means I can't update any of the playlists I've posted. That means here is another small sample of your SnowColors channel.

SiriusXM Channel 786 - Jazz Holidays

Carol Of The Bells - Nancy Wilson/New York Voices (2001)
Deck The Halls - Bobby Timmons (1964)
Deck The Halls - Yellowjackets (2003)
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen - Take 6/Yellowjackets (1991)
Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas - Kenny G (1994)
I'll Be Home For Christmas - Kenny G (1999)
It's the Most Wonderful Time Of The Year - Take 6 (2010)
Jingle Bells - Take 6 (2010)
Joy To The World/Hark The Herald Angels Sing - Peter White (1997)
Let It Snow Let It Snow Let It Snow - Wynton Marsalis (1989)
Let It Snow Let It Snow Let It Snow - Thisbe Vos (2013)
O Come All Ye Faithful - Take 6 (1991)
O Holy Night - Kirk Whalum (2001)
Silent Night - Michael Lington (2008)
Silent Night - Take 6 (1991)
Silent Night (Live) - Michael McDonald/David Sanborn (2014)
Sleigh Ride - Lea DeLaria (2010)

The Christmas Song - Grover Washington Jr. (1997)
The Jingle Bell Cha-Cha - David Ricard Big Band (2015)
Winter Wonderland - George Shearing Quintet (1998)

Lea DeLaria sings Sleigh Ride but omits the word "sleigh": "It's lovely weather for a ride together with you." She should have just called the song Ride. Maybe she figured nobody in the 21st century knows what a sleigh is.

Whoever programs Holiday Traditions (Channel 73, November 1 through December 25) must have just discovered Spirit Of The Holidays, a 2005 double-CD by smooth-jazz pianist Lisa Addeo. She released it on her own label, cleverly named Lisa Addeo Records. I think the channel is playing almost every song from it. Here is her version of Here We Come A-Wassailing, an 1850 English carol also known as The Wassail Song. The 12th-century Old English word "wassail" means "Be healthy" and is spoken as a toast.

Amazingly, I don't see anything here about Acoustic Christmas chan 14. We've been listening to it since the weekend. Very pleasant, with some nice contemporary artists covering classic songs.

Normally, the Coffeehouse. I'll be listening during my Holiday traveling in the next two days. For some reason this year, I've been more into Holly than Holiday Traditions. Must be the mild winter season we're having so far.

It was just a free for all on a lot of the channels Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I was on the road for about 6 hours traveling between families and had a great time switching back and forth with all the channels: Enlightment, Escape, Watercolors, Sinatra all had holiday music. As well as Holly, Hallmark, Soul, Coffeehouse Acoustic, Holiday Traditions, Christmas Sprit. SXM was a good friend

I had Holly, Traditions, and Hallmark on for the Mrs XMas Eve and yesterday while we were making our rounds.
That was plenty for me. She'll listen to as much of it as she can, but fortunately I won't need to put it on in my car for her.

40's Junction is back. Hooray! Although I would have been ok with another week of Holiday Traditions. The Coffeehouse is also back on the air. Not as big of a deal as I only listen in September and October, then May and June. But it appears, all the Holiday channels except Holly & Hallmark are done on the radios. I'd say my favorite song this season was Taylor Swift Christmas Tree Farm
