Its October, which, to some, means it’s the appropriate time in the year to start shoving Christmas down your throat. And what better way to kick it off than with a holly jolly Christmas CD from an iconic group?

Actually, you grinch, this is quite exciting for fans of the soulful Staple Singers. The Chicago quartet will be re-releasing its 1962 holiday-inspired album The 25th Day of December.
