Hard to believe it's already the Twelfth Day of Christmas!
I can't thank you enough for stopping by and listening to the Sounds of Christmas this season. The comments and emails have helped make it a wonderful year for me, and I'm very grateful that you chose to spend at least part of your holiday celebration with us!
Getting ready to put my toys away for the year, but we will be back on in the Fall, and I do hope you'll take a moment to bookmark us so you can be sure to be with us for the Christmas season of 2014!
Special thanks to DeDe, Kanisha K, Luanne Hunt, Sarah Pierce, Kenny Davies, Terence P. Minogue, Barbara Bretton, Louis Colaiannia, Natasha Miller, Danny Wright, James Robert Webb and Joel Kopischke for sponsoring this year's broadcast! Without them, there would not have been a Sounds of Christmas! You can click on each of their names and visit their homes on the web, check out their music and books, and, if so moved, buy their stuff! Or look them up on Amazon, iTunes, etc. Or just visit them on Facebook or Twitter and show them some love!
While this is the last Top Ten list, I will have a Top 100 for the whole season, coming up in another week or so (once I finish crunching all the numbers)!
