One nice thing about having such a huge history of posts is that I can pick and choose what I reshare.  You've probably notice that I reshare some of the same stuff year after year, those would be my favorites.  And this one has crept into my favorites list over the past two years, since first showing up here in 2008.  It's not a big name band, it's not a huge major label, but it's good music.  I don't think there's anything on here that you'd consider a Christmas standard, either.  No White Christmas or Silent Night.  No Rudolph or even Santa songs.  But if you listen to it, it still sounds like Christmas, no doubt about it and I think that's a rare thing.  So if you haven't already got this one, you really should download The Madrid Concert Orchestra And Chorus-Victorino Echevarria, Arranger-Conductor-Christmas In Spain (United Artists UAS 6059, Stereo, 1959).
