I have a large amount of holiday music. When I use Genius it pulls the holiday music into the lists/mixes. Is there a way to exclude it? Can I move the holiday songs out of iTunes for the 11 months of the year when I don't listen to it and move it back in when I want it (I don't want to delete and reload it all)?

    Uncheck the holiday songs. Unchecking songs does a number of things:
    Unchecked songs will be skipped when playing songs from the library or a selection. They will only play when individually clicked on.
    Smart Playlists have an option that unchecked songs won't appear.
    Unchecked songs will not be burned to CD.
    Neither Genius nor iTunesDJ will use the songs that are unchecked.

    Basically unchecking is a way of telling iTunes to ignore the item and exclude it from other automatic features.

    I have over 450 holiday songs. Is there a way to check or uncheck multiple songs?

    Do a search for "Holiday". When the list comes up, hold down the Command (cmd) key and click on one of the checkboxes with the mouse.

    When I sync Genius Mix to the iPod it pulls over the holiday music even though it isn't checked and it isn't appearing in the mixes. Can I use mix and keep it from coming over?
