I love Christmas music, big-time. I could listen to it year-round, but I think it would drive Lee bonkers. So the minute Thanksgiving is over, the music I play in the house every day switches from my favorite online radio station (Campfire Radio) to my collection of Yuletide songs on iTunes. For the past 4 years, I've created a Christmas soundtrack to give out as gifts. Each year I try and create a varied mix of old standards and new songs by a wide range of musicians -- from Peggy Lee to Ole Blue Eyes to Sarah McLachlan.
In 2007, I stumbled upon a Christmas album by Mindy Smith. If you love Christmas music too, I highly recommend this album. There are 6 new songs that Mindy wrote, all of which I love, and standards like Silver Bells and Away in a Manger.
What are your favorite Christmas tunes? Two of my favs are Someday at Christmas by Stevie Wonder and Oh Come Oh Come Emmanuel (any version).
