Of course you'll fill it with the Charles Darwin Christmas Ornament so your atheist friends can include a jolly, bearded fellow on their science tree as they gather 'round to sing secular, humanist carols.

5. Spread the Good Vibes Around with Positive Music
What the world needs now is - positive music vibes. When I'm in a funk, I listen to some posi-tunes, and that totally rocks my world! Some of my favorites are the musicians I've been inspired to write about on Opednews, including Greg Tamblyn, Harold Payne, and Daniel Nahmod (subject of an upcoming article).

Award-winning singer-songwriter Greg Tamblyn is saving the world from whiny, victim love songs. (We know it's true because that is the name of one of his CDs.) His clever lyrics and uplifting tunes will ratchet your joy up a couple of notches. He honors the annual AmEx Small Business Saturday offer on phone orders, and this year he's added his own 30% off sale, too. You can hear his music by clicking on the albums here. Three of my favorites are on the same album, and include All These Atoms, Holy Now, and The Grand Design, listen here. His sale details are here.

Harold Payne is a multi-platinum singer songwriter noted for his positive tunes. My favorites include Something Wonderful, Vamos a La Playa, and his song that Peter, Paul and Mary made famous, Music Speaks Louder Than Words. Listen here. For the ultimate gift, you can hire Harold to write a custom song for your event or loved one. Happy recipients include Regis Philbin, you can hear his personalized song on Harold's website.

I first met Daniel Nahmod nearly a decade ago when he sang at a Kucinich event in Arizona and I became an instant fan. His new Mellow Time: Soothing Songs for the Whole Family is on the 2014 Grammy ballot. Some of my favorites include One Power, Sacred Love, and Water. He's having a 50% off sale on both Black Friday and Small Business Saturday.
