“Chestnuts roasting on an open fire…” You’re way more likely to hum it than do it, aren’t you?

The time of year for exaggerated gestures of love and unrelenting holiday cheer is finally upon us. As we approach occasions filled with endless laughs, conversation, dinners, and quality time spent with those who know us best, let’s reflect on the soundtrack. The holidays would be lackluster lacking Eartha Kitt’s seductive purr on “Santa Baby,” Dean Martin’s “Baby It’s Cold Outside” or Mariah Carey’s strong voice declaring all she really wants for Christmas is you.
