My Favorite Holiday Albums To Spread Cheer

I LOVE music and Christmas music is so special to me.  It reminds me of all the lovely Christmas' that have past.  I have a few albums that always remind me of the holiday season and I cannot wait to share them with you! And now that the local Denver station (101.1) has begun playing Christmas music, I am all in the season spirit!!

1. The Christmas Song - A Silent Film. Are you surprised this is number one? That's what I thought. Click on the link for a FREE download of this wonderful rendition.

2. Lee Greenwood - THIS would be the Christmas album that reminds me the most of Christmas. It is the first one I ever remember hearing. Even though it is technically country {what?!} I don't associate it with country music. It just gives me all the good Christmas feels and it is not Christmas in my house without it.

3. The Nutcracker - As far back as I can remember my Nana was taking me to the Nutcracker ballet. I owe her for my love of ballet and am so happy I am able to practice it now after all these years. Lil factoid, I was IN The Nutcracker at my ballet studio a couple years back and it was such a full circle experience!

4. A Very Special Christmas 1987 - The other album that reminds me of Christmas' past. Besides Lee Greenwood, this was the other one spinning in our home the most! Does this one date me much?! LOL

5. Kenny & Dolly, Once Upon a Christmas - Another country album that only sounds like Christmas to me! I love the joy that all of the albums and Christmas songs in general give me. It really is the most wonderful time of the year. It is so great to have a special time each year to listen to just joy!

Honorable mention to Mariah Carey's Christmas album. LOVE that one so much too! Ok also Beach Boys Christmas and the Bing record I got for only .99 cents at a record store! Check those bargain bins! I LOVE Christmas MUSIC!! Is that obvious?! LOL Share your favorites with me below!!

  4. My dad had that Very Special Christmas on vinyl! I remember listening to everything on a record player when I was little. I remember the first ever CD player we had was selling for like $500 dollars, but my dad won it at a raffle, and we had it for months before we even used it lol. Now that's how you know you're old!

  8. Are those vinyls?! I'm oozing with jealousy. Radioactive Return of the Ooze style ooze.
    Now that you know that unfortunate fact about me, um, hi, I'm a new fan of your blog. I just posted my first Five Fandom Friday today and hope to write more!

  13. My mom had A Very Special Christmas 1987 on vinyl for home & cassette for the car. It went on loop from the time Thanksgiving dishes were cleaned up until New Years day in our house for as long as I can remember!
