Thankfully, all these mixes were made by living breathing wonderful mortals. So there’s your shot of faith for this yuletide. Yeah, what fools these mortals be. Yet they’re so endlessly strong and yearning, even when their bones are frozen.
A wintry mix to soothe gentle souls savaged by 24/7 Christmas jingles in your face all the time.
