Dream Weapons Present: XMAS DELIGHTS VOL. VIII C60 

As always before this eight ever Xmas Delights is a nostalgia-drenched hour stuffed with mostly folk, latin and lightly jazzy Yuletide oldies. Whether you’re lukewarm, love or hate this season - another choosy selection of carefully handpicked festive tunes as presented by Dream Weapons is exactly what you need. Its about 50% serious beauty while the rest is cozy or jolly. Merry Christmas, Happy Winter Festival, God Jul or whatever you prefer! -Moahaha
