Christmas Carols

December 18th, 2010 at 07:44 am

I love Christmas music.

It's simple, I love Christmas music because it makes me happy. It makes me thoughtful. And, because it is often enjoyable and something I know the words to.

I listen to Christmas music year round in fact. Call me weird. There's one CD I like to clean house by. I don't know why. I just do. Well, there's also a Beach Boys CD I clean house by too. I bet those surfing guys never pictured that.

With You Tube, we can get so much music out there and find new artists and this and that. And see some of our old favorites.

I love acapella music. I don't have perfect pitch so I can appreciate those who have it. There's a group out there called Straight No Chaser and although I have purchased two of their CDs, I still like seeing them on You Tube because I can "see" them. Their Twelve Days of Christmas is a classic. Today, on Facebook, a friend shared their Christmas can can and it was a hoot.

I don't go out caroling because if I breathe too much cold air, I get bronchitis. But, I certainly like listening to Christmas music.

Do you have a favorite Christmas song?

    I love the group you mention. Have you heard their "12 Days"? What a hoot!

    With the magic of youtube, I've been able to watch the Bing Crosby/David Bowie rendition of "Little Drummer Boy/ Peace on Earth". I saw it eons ago on one of Bing's Christmas specials as a kid, and it's still one of my favorites.

    Call me weird too - not too many carols I don't like, and I've been known to sing them at any time of the year (ask me how my kids like this :-)
