My favorite album is Nat King Cole's, "The Christmas Song." It includes 20 classic Christmas songs, which I love!

Hi Everyone:

I'm a die hard Christmas music fan -- but, only in December!

My 2 all-time favorites are:

  1. A Boston Pops Christmas - by the Boston Pops Orchestra, of course!
  2. Noel by Josh Groban -- I adore his angelic voice.

Fa...La...La...La...La!

I love Christmas music and I generally listen to some of it in June/July, not a lot though. Once Thanksgiving hits that's all I listen to Mannheim Steamroller is hands down my favorite. See them live if you can.

Probalby too late for this year but I will see if I can catch them next year -- funny, for a long time, I would get Mannheim Steamroller and Trans Siberian Orchestra mixed up -- no idea why, they are very different. I did enjoy seeing TSO live.

Fortunately, I haven't heard "Christmas Shoes" yet. I hate that @#%$&!! song. It's unctuous, smarmy, and makes me cry every time I hear it.

The most interesting and unusual album is I know is Bruce ****burn's "Christmas." It a great mix of songs from various genres and centuries. It includes the first Christmas song ever written in the Americas.

Christmas shoes should be banned like baby it?s cold outside, lol.

That Bruce ****burn one sounds interesting, I will try to find it!

edited because auto correct changed banned to named which makes no sense
