It is no secret that Jerry Garcia drew from a variety of American songbooks over the years, both with the Grateful Dead and his own bands. Around the holidays, those songbooks also occasionally included some Christmas-themed music.

If you are looking to add some of Garcia’s Christmas covers to your holiday playlist today, then head over to our sister site to hear a pair of his holiday selections. So while you are opening your gifts, watching the yule log or putting your menorah back in the cabinet for next year, be sure to put on the Grateful Dead’s rendition of “Run Rudolph Run” or Jerry Garcia Band’s “Jingle Bells.”
