Fun, light hearted holiday music for all.

I'm putting together a holiday play list for the office pot luck and, trying to make it fun and all inclusive. I've got tunes from Peanuts to Springsteen to the Arrogant Worms. I'm in need of more Hanukkah (got the Adam Sandler one, thx.) and desperately in need of some music for the woman organizing as she's Islamic (and for the record has a wicked sense of humor). Ideas?

looking for 1974 tv movie version of Little Match Girl starring Lynsey Baxter

Can anyone tell me where I could find a copy (legit or not) of the 1974 TV movie "The Little Match Girl" (IMDB info here) that starred Lynsey Baxter. It was a great, particularly dark version, and I'd like to show it to my family this holiday. Any leads appreciated. It was originally produced by a TV station in Cincinnatti. I am not interested in any other version than this one. Thanks!

For it is in giving that we receive

What are some workplace holiday gift ideas for my two hip, cultured, smart, (and imo underpaid) mid-20s employees? They're full-time employees and I work with them very closely. I want to get them really great gifts that aren't wildly impersonal and aren't for the workplace, in the $75-100 range and not food- or drink-related. All I can think of is spa gift cards. Surely there are better ideas, right?

Help me find a quirky and not too expensive hotel in Stockholm.

I'm heading with my partner to Stockholm for a long weekend in June and would love recommendations for a place to stay. We'd like to stay somewhere that won't break the bank but also a bit individual and quirky. For example, I stayed in the CitzenM hotel in Glasgow recently and loved it - it was boutique but at a budget conscious £70-90 per night. I am guessing Stockholm will be a bit pricer than Glasgow so happy to pay a bit more, but that's the sort of place I am looking for. TIA!
