Blogmass 2012 Day Ten - Readers Digest Part One

This may be the smallest Readers Digest box set ever - only five discs. Most other sets seem to have closer to ten discs (my Grandmother had several). I'll split this one up over the next few days.

Each side of each disc has a theme:
1A Joy To The World
1B We Wish You A Merry Christmas
2A Silent Night
2B Holy Night
3A White Christmas
3B Sleigh Ride
4A Country Christmas
4B Hometown Christmas
5A Christmas Fun
5B The Christmas Spirit
