Ramblings: It's beginning to look alot like...

Every year the day after Halloween, I officially bust out all my Christmas songs. Before you even begin to make fun of me, save your energy. I've heard it all before--Jeremy gives me a hard time every year when he comes in the house and hears Christmas music and Thanksgiving hasn't even passed yet. Not to mention it's been 80* the past couple of days, so it does seem funny listening to songs talking about snow, cold weather and sleigh bells.

Sarah McLachlan's Christmas cd is still one of my favorites and I forget how much I like it until the day after Halloween when I allow myself to start playing it again. So I'm wondering, what's your favorite Christmas album? I need to add more to my collection since I have two WHOLE months I get to listen to it...

If you're in the mood for fun, upbeat music that's NOT Christmas related, then try this album. Remember these guys from the late 90's? I think I like this one even more than I loved their first one back then. I double-dog-dare you to listen to "She's Got the (Who-Hoo)" or "Girls Were Made to Love" without busting out some dance moves. Impossible.

And now, I must flee because the kids are home and have gotten their Halloween trick-or-treating bags down from on top of the fridge and are making off like bandits because they know I'm not patrolling their consumption. If only they knew I've already eaten out all the good stuff. Don't worry---the busting waistband on my shorts is quite aware that I've scarfed everything Butterfinger, Snickers, and Peanut M&M's related.

Harry Connick Jr. Home for the Holidays.

The Killers also have a Christmas single out called "Don't Shoot Me Santa" that is awesome.

I have been playing Christmas music in my classroom for the kiddos. They kind of looked at me funny when I started it, but now they like it and it is relaxing. :)

I like Jim Brickman's Christmas CD. I prefer the music without the words, but if you must have words then my husband recommends Josh Groban's cd or Alabama's Homecoming Christmas (its a family tradition in his house). I also like Michael Buble's Christmas cd...
Oh, and my husband thinks I'm crazy for NOT wanting to listen to Christmas music until after Thanksgiving... I'm with Jeremy on that one. It must wait until after...

It definitely has to wait until after Thanksgiving. But I will make you some CD's.

I, too, love Sarah's Christmas CD but it doesn't include my fav "Winters Night" by her and Jewel so download that one for sure.

I also love the Barenaked Ladies Christmas album. It has Christmas and Hanukkah songs and is great.

Then I like a good mix. I have a several Christmas with the Stars albums. I have the Spice Girls singing Sleigh Ride Everclear singing Santa Baby.

For purely instrumental I'd have to go with David Lanz' Christmas album. Jim Brickman's songs all start to sound the same to me after a while but David's are great.

I know it's cheesy but I do like Josh Groban's Christmas album too.
