Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories - December 21- Christmas Music

                 The Crosby singing doll, complete with microphone and pipe!
Okay. I'll admit it.  I love Christmas music. I have been known to start listening to Christmas carols in September.   I have so many favorites, it's hard to narrow them down to just a few.  Before radio stations finally began playing Christmas music all day, I used to buy tons of CD's and cassette tapes just so I could play them in the car to get me in the spirit for shopping.   Of course, I love Bing Crosby's Christmas songs, especially "White Christmas" and Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin are very welcome in my home.  I practically wore out both of The Carpenter's Christmas record albums.  "Merry Christmas, Darling" is a particular favorite for me.    But the carols that praise the meaning of Christmas are the best.  "Silent Night" and "Away in a Manger" are beautiful in their simplicity and truth.  One cd that I must listen to each year is that of John Denver's Christmas music.   "A Baby Just Like You", "Aspenglow",   and "Christmas Like a Lullaby" are  the perfect songs for listening to while gazing at the twinkling lights on the tree. I simply can't get enough of it.  So, while some people are lamenting how sick they are of Christmas carols, you can bet, I'm probably right here at my computer with my speakers playing those moonlight and mistletoe tunes!


  1. Ditto Dorene's comment, that Bing Crosby doll is just too precious! And, funny too!!
