♪♫ ♫♪♪♫ ♫♪♪♫ ♫♪

I love Christmas music.

It is just wonderful. And merry. And jolly.

And, well, any other adjective that has a positive connotation for the holiday season.

Now, Christmas CD's can be a little tricky if you aren't careful. For example, one Christmas my parents picked up a 2 CD pack of "elegant Christmas music." Well, when we put it in the CD player while decorating the Christmas tree, you can imagine our surprise and chagrin when we discovered that the CD was really "elegant disco styled Christmas music."

Ta-cky.

And so, in the spirit of the season, I am going to "gift," you a list of some of my favorite Christmas CD's.

Michael Buble's "Let it Snow!"

WOW Christmas

Kenny G's "Faith"

Chris Rice's "The Living Room Sessions"

Josh Groban's "Noel"

Any of Mannheim Steamroller's christmas CD's

Mariah Carey's "Merry Christmas" (trust me, it's great!)

Chris Tomlin's "Glory in the Highest" (this is going to be my new CD for the season!)

Nat King Cole's "The Christmas Song"


Happy Christmas musicing!

Do you have any favorite Christmas CD's that are good?

Hey, thanks for the comment. That's so random - the Elba connection. Elba is not a big or well known town! Love your blog! Merry Christmas

PS-My favorite Christmas song to sing is Mariah Carey - All I want for Christmas is You! haha, not very traditional, but man I wish I could sing like that!

I'm not sure about a favorite Christmas CD, but my favorite song is Christmas in Dixie. I just LOVE it! And Michael Buble is my new obsession- I find myself dancing around the house to his "Can't Buy Me Love." Ha. Brian hasn't caught me yet or I would be in trouble!

I really like Toby Keith's christmas CD, and George Straight's Christmas CDs. And Alabama's first Christmas CD is a classic - definitely a must in our house! We're more country music people though, but Alabama's is good for anybody. Oh yes, and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's Christmas CD too - very good. :-D

I agree that the Mariah Carey one is a good one! Even though I don't really like her....give her her due she has a good Christmas album. Christina Aguilera has a good Christmas CD as well. Very heartfelt! :)
