It’s exactly 90 days till Christmas, which means the holiday season is already among us. The air around just got colder, crisper and our heads all of a sudden slowly transitioning into vacay mode. For others, it’s also a realization that the mad sprint to finish 2022 with a flourish kick offs. Regardless of mind set, one thing is for sure, and that’s Christmas season is a time for family and gifts – tons of them (so pace yourselves accordingly). 

To help us all get in the mood as well as offer us a gift idea, Leslie Odom, Jr steps up to the plate (pun intended) with his “Merry, Merry” holiday box set. A collection of classic and new tunes that’ll keep your spirits up as we creep closer to Christmas time. Wrapped in a neat white package with a red ribbon complete with a note from the man himself, Sir Leslie Odin, Jr. ensures us that all our days be merry and bright.
