For ten years my good friend Steve Tanner has been sponsoring the 25 Days of Christmas Music. Starting on December 1, he gives away a free Christmas song each day, ending on December 25. This year's theme is "Culinary Christmas," which means that each song references food or drink in the lyrics.

I don't know exactly how he does it or where he finds the various songs, but each year he offers this free musical gift to folks who visit his website. As an additional bonus, you can download all the songs he has offered from 2001-2009. That's a total of over 275 Christmas songs offering 14.4 hours of listening pleasure.

I'm glad Steve offers the rest of us this gift of Christmas music each year. Just go to the 25 Days of Christmas Music and you can start your "Culinary Christmas" celebration today.
