Love Great Food & Good Times? Holidays Are On The Way!
Plus Great Music for Cooking Shows, Food & Beverage Ads and Products

With the goblins of Halloween now disposed of, attention turns to the upcoming Holidays and occasions: Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Chinese New Years and Valentine's Day.  In this festive newsletter, we highlight for you some great music for cooking shows, commercials, products, and restaurants, as well as vibrant, uplifting Christmas music,  including instrumentals and both male and female Christmas vocal tracks.

Cooking Show music often has a food, beverage or cooking theme integrated directly into the music, or is simply fairly calm music that is light and entertaining.  This music is ideally suited for TV cooking shows such as Essence of Emeril, Hell's Kitchen, The Cooking Cajun, Ready Steady Cook, Great Chefs, The Frugal Gourmet, The French Chef, Top Chef, Martha Stewart, and other similar popular cooking shows, products, restaurants, commercials and more.

Make your Holidays bright with warm Holiday Music and Sound Effects from around the world. We have hundreds of heartwarming and whimsical music tracks with both religious and secular themes for your TV and Film productions, family Holiday specials, commercials, ad campaigns, games, toy embedding, etc. From Jingle Bells and Sugar Plum Groove, to Ava Maria and Deck the Halls – AudioSparx has you covered!

Christmas Trivia
Did you know....

- Although many believe the Friday after Thanksgiving is the busiest shopping day of the year, it is not. It is the fifth to tenth busiest day. The Friday and Saturday before Christmas are the two busiest shopping days of the year.

- Christmas trees are edible. Many parts of pines, spruces, and firs can be eaten. The needles are a good source of vitamin C. Pine nuts, or pine cones, are also a good source of nutrition.  So, on that note, bon appetit!!
