Hello I'm a newbie I d/l before Christmas because I wasn't happy with itunes kinda . So During Christmas I loaded up lots of Christmas music . Most of the time I just pull up my total song list and set random play. is there a way to tag or say lock up my Christmas music so it is only played from a Christmas playlist

Tag them with a genre of Christmas, or something to your liking and then set up a filter for "no Christmas."

The Wiki should have information about filters.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.4 patch from here.

That's exactly what I do, except I have a filter for Christmas and my playlists use a ruler to only include ticked tracks. I have a variety of unticked tracks that I exclude for other reasons, but when I want to include Christmas I go to the filter and tick them all (select all, right click, tick selected) and when I don't want to include them I untick them all.

If you're only playing your whole library, phred's suggestion is probably simpler.
