Today is not only Christmas, but it’s also Jimmy Buffett’s birthday! 

In honor of the singer-songwriter’s 71st birthday, if you can’t have a “Cheeseburger in Paradise” or hang out in “Margaritaville,” we think you should give his album Christmas Island a whirl.

The album contains covers of Christmas classics, as well as some original songs, like “A Sailor’s Christmas” and “Ho Ho Ho & A Bottle Of Rum.”  Enjoy…we’re sure plenty of Parrotheads will be doing the same.
