Alternative Genki Christmas Music

The Japanese almanac says winter begins on the 8th of November, called Ritto (Beginning of Winter) and the first snow falls around the 22nd, Shosetsu (Little Snow). Now that bit of education is over, here are some Genki Winter songs!

It’s Christmas and all over the globe, terrible music will be blaring out of speakers in public places and private residences. I am no fan of Christmas songs so here is my alternative December Soundtrack.
