Christmas in July - Favourite Christmas Music
In our family music has always played very largely into our Christmas celebrations. Each year we would beg our mom to let us listen to Christmas music starting in October or so. Usually we would end up waiting until December 1st, or the odd time the end of November if Mom was feeling particularly festive.
Here are some of my favourites:
What Child Is This?
Good Christian Men Rejoice
O Come All Ye Faithful
Let It Snow
Over the River and Through the Woods
The Coventry Carol
A few Christmases ago my family got me the "Merry Christmas Songbook" published by Reader's Digest. A whole huge book of piano/guitar/vocal music devoted just to Christmas songs. So much fun!
Last winter my favourite Christmas album was "Christmas Songs" by Diana Krall. Every time I would play this CD my then almost 2 year old would come up to me and ask if we could dance. It's great! :)
What are some of your favourites? Please leave a comment and/or a link to your Christmas in July post if you are playing along on your blog.
