Playlist: Music on Christmas Eve
Posted by Daryl Paranada
For Marketplace, Friday, December 24, 2010
On today’s show we featured — what else — stories about the holiday season and Christmas. We had a feature on the man behind the holiday hit “Christmas Wrapping.” Sarah Gardner told us why she might stop buying gift cards and giving away cash for Christmas. Mitchell Hartman wondered what the spending is like for people who don’t celebrate Christmas. And we had the story of one woman who faced the Christmas shopping blitz — $50,000 in debt. Felix Salmon and Heidi Moore wrapped up the week for us, and Stephen Beard told us about why Greece is causing concern again. Have a happy holidays everyone. Here are the decidedly Christmas-y songs we played:
- Christmas in Harlem — Hit-Boy
- I Do Not Care for the Winter Sun — Beach House
- The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire) — Henry ManciniBuy
- 12 Days Of Christmas — Various Artists
- Presents for Christmas — Solomon BurkeBuy
- Christmas Wrapping — The WaitressesBuy
