Favorite Christmas Carols


I'm not religious but for a long time I loved listening to Away in the Manger and The First Noel. They were my favorites. But lately I've been into ones that make you want to have random dance parties in the kitchen - like Brenda Lee's Rockin Around the Christmas Tree. That one gets me every time. It's like drop everything and dance!

I also realized that Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, the version Frank Sinatra sings, is really  depressing. It was playing in the background the other day and just brought the whole mood down. Yangkyu thinks I'll Be Home for Christmas is the saddest Christmas song. 

My Pandora (does anyone still use this?) is fixed on Christmas station and I have it playing at random times of the day. For some people, too much Christmas music annoys them. I happen to like it and I don't tire of it. It reminds me of all the fun things that happened in the small town I grew up in and how my mom used to set a plate for our childhood cocker, Bobby, at the family table. Plates she would only use for our Christmas Eve dinners (Christmas Eve dinners were bigger for us than Christmas dinners). Those were happy times.

  1. I still listen to Pandora and it's been playing Chrismtas music since Nov 1st! (much to Brandon's dislike haha) I prefer all the old/classic versions to many of the new ones... except Mariah and Michael Buble!
