Gearing up for holiday travel? Putumayo has lots of other international Christmas music that are great for long car trips or family staycations. You can always groove to the sounds of a A Jazz & Blues Christmas, New Orleans Christmas and Christmas Around the World, which combined have sold more than 1 million copies.
