The Gusto Blog promises to make you aware of Christmas freebies as they appear.
For starters, from Belgium comes this dandy free Christmas album from Stella Artois beer. Just download it free and there you go! I am listening to it right now. Christmas music can never start too early for me!
It starts with this suave Belgian man with an Andre Rieu sort of accent explaining how Stella Artois meant "Christmas star" and the beer was originally intended as a holiday brew. You see this hilarious model, pictured above.
Then you swing into a cute "Deck the Halls" and after that, a raunched-up jazz version of Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker." And it goes from there.
May we point out how the graphics, showing a vinyl record playing on an ice turntable, is proof of the enduring elegance of vinyl.
Anyway, lots of fun -- and free.
