If there is a “war” on Christmas, it’s only to stress the fact that the holiday should be a LOT more than just the giant retail event businesses are trying to turn it into.

There were radio stations playing Christmas music 24/7 WEEKS before Thanksgiving!
But now that all the ultra-commercialized hype is over, for now, do you know who the FIRST performer(s) of each song listed below were?
01. Frosty the Snowman⛄
02. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas🎄
03. Here Comes Santa Claus🎅
04. Jingle Bell🔔 Rock
05. Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!❆❄❅
06. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer🦌
07. Santa🎅 Baby
08. Santa Claus🎅 Is Coming To Town
09. Silver Bells🕭🕭
10. White Christmas🎄
11. Sleigh🛷 Ride (as an instrumental)
12. Sleigh Ride🛷 (with lyrics)
