Our Favorite Ways to Celebrate: #2

Festive Favorite #2

Christmas Carols

I utterly love Christmas music. While I enjoy all types, this is, afterall, a list of my favorites, so while difficult to narrow down, here they are:

Diana Krall's jazzy melodies are the perfect backdrop for a soiree with friends. I also love Michael Buble's Let is Snow, and Sara McLachlan's rendition of Noel.

I absolutely love Celtic Woman, and their Christmas album is no exception.

I love Classical Christmas music. The staff at my clinic make fun of me for this, as they all prefer more light hearted renditions of Frosty and Rudolph. I listen to these as well, more for the sake of my children, but a good ole classical piece really gets me in the Christmas spirit.

If asked what one Christmas song is my favorite, it is without a doubt, Carol of the Bells. It gives me tingles whenever I hear it.

What is your favorite Christmas music?  Classical, or the Classics, fun and lighthearted?

Thanks for the music list- will definitely check some of the ones I don't know out- I'm totally cheezy when it comes to Christmas favourite is Dolly Parton/Kenny Rogers 'I'll be home for Christmas'- I don't feel like it's Christmas until I've listened to it:)

Good morning!
I had the opportunity to see the Celtic Woman a couple of seasons ago and so enjoyed their lovely voices.

Music is such a fantastic part of our lives. I do not know how we could enjoy life as much as we do with out it.

May the Season bring you joy!
