Section 101 Blog

Holiday Blog 2011 Featuring the S101 Team's Top Song Picks!!

After 12 months of blogging, discussing ideas, opinions, and maybe even dropping a helpful hint or two, I thought we'd close out the year with a little bit of fun. 

It's no secret that I love holiday music - just last week I was in a Starbucks with my family and made an impulse buy of "Christmas," the new Michael Bublé album (you can blame me for its reign at #1). I love the melodies and the spirit of holiday music, and how it makes me feel when I hear it and the mood it sets. For that reason, I thought it would be fun to share our favorite holiday songs as chosen by the Section 101 staff. 

Of course my hope is that the consistency of my monthly blogging isn't lost on you, (I couldn't resist!), but really, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for stopping by the Section101 site this past year. As we continue to grow and develop exciting new products for artists and brands, we hope Section 101 remains a destination for you to visit for your online needs. I wish you and your families a very happy holiday and a wonderful New Year. 

Enjoy this holiday play list. I look forward to "seeing you" in 2012!!
