I was a HUGE fan of the show The O.C. back in the day, not least because of the incredible music on the show. The music supervisor for The O.C. was legendary in finding new cool bands to feature. Thanks to The O.C. I learned about Imogen Heap, Spoon, Phantom Planet, and the list goes on. I bought every one of the six soundtrack Mix albums. But an all-time favorite is Mix #3, the Chrismukkah album.
Chrismukkah is the best holiday ever, and Seth Cohen of The O.C. gave a name to just what we do in my house. My husband is Jewish, and I grew up Christian so we do both. I sent many a Chrismukkah card after The O.C. episode that perfectly described our family’s combo celebration (Oh, Seth Cohen how I miss you!):

This is my second favorite song from the Chrismukkah album. Maybe This Christmas by Ron Sexsmith:
