Santa Songs for Cieran, Rosie, Avery, and EVERYONE

santa-kids-300x300It’s weird not making individual Christmas mixes for people this year, but it’s definitely fun to be able to share so many great songs with so many more people. I’m going to dedicate this mix of kid-friendly Santa songs to the most important very young people in my life: My four-year-old nieces Avery and Rosie, and my brand new, not-even-two-weeks-old nephew, Cieran! I am willing to bet this is his very first Christmas mix. He may not get a lot out of it this year, but I hope he will in the years to come. And for all you jaded folks who don’t feel you’re young-at-heart enough for this mix, stay tuned for next week’s definitely-not-for-children sequel: Sexy Santa!
