A Festivus Mixtape!

But when I do…I listen to compilations made 23 years ago by a plucky 11-year-old Canadian!

Listening to this 23-track mix tape 23 years later put me in a ridiculously good mood.
The wonderful memories associated with these songs are too plentiful to mention (a nice problem to have) so I’ll leave the songs to speak for themselves.
I hope some of the above tracks trigger a pleasant memory or 23 for you as well.
And as it is December 23rd, of course, a Happy Festivus to all.
Whatever you celebrate/don’t celebrate this year, make it a good one, enjoy!
