Playlist of the (christmasy musical advent calendar thingy) Year (2013)

Archivists may one day stumble across these pages and ask what went down in the Bitsnbobs 2013 Christmas Musical Advent Calendar Thingy?

Then again they might just look at it and scratch their heads.

Anarchists, on the other hand, could just blow the whole thing to kingdom come.

But, in the possibility that you are more the former than the latter, here is what went down.

editor's note - in compiling this compilation it was brought to our attention that The Leisure society featured twice in the original thingy. Please accept our seasonal apologies, and we have set things to right by replacing one with Hark The herald - Kate Rusbyy's second ditty in the thingy.
