Share Your Favorites!

Okay, so I know this may seem a little early to some of you, and for others, EXTREMELY too early, but since it's my blog, I guess I get to write about what I want right:). I'm asking all my readers to share your favorite holiday CDs. When you write your comment, be sure to tell us the title and why you love it so much. I'll start. It's hard for me to come up with one favorite, so I'll tell you about a few. First of all, I LOVE my two disc set called, "The Time-Life Treasury of Christmas".It's got all the classic Christmas songs sung by all the classic vocalists. It just makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, there's nothing like it! My second choice is "Cyrus Chestnut and Friends, A Charlie Brown Christmas". It's basically the soundtrack to Charlie Brown Christmas with several other feel-good Christmas jazz tunes. Then there's the whole Mannheim Steamroller Christmas collection. A more modern sound, but they create the magical Christmas feeling nonetheless. Travis and I have actually been to a Mannheim Steamroller concert, it was amazing!
So join the fun! Share your favorites so we can all build our Christmas music libraries with music that has been tested and highly approved!

LOVE my Mercy Me Christmas album...can't remember the name of it but it's a red cover and the band members are all bundled up - their version of Little Drummer Boy is awesome!!

We have downloaded some Harry for the Holidays (Harry Connick Jr.)that we like a bunch. I also love David Lanz's Christmas Eve album - it's all piano, need I say more!

Barlow Girl's Christmas album is really good and also Third Day's Christmas offerings album!

I love Amy Grant's Christmas album and the songs on the Lee Greenwood Christmas album. Both of them are pretty old, but I grew up listening to them, so now whenever I hear them, it brings back tons of memories!

Our all-time favorite has to be John Denver & The Muppets: A Christmas Together.

I hope to order your first featured cd set in the next few weeks! Thanks for passing it on!

For me it has to be The Carpenters. When I was young my Mom would play their Christmas tape over and over. By the end of the season it made me crazy, but to this day when I hear it, it makes me think of Christmas when I was young. It makes me a little misty eyed, but doesn't Karen Carpenter's voice do that to everyone?
