We're livin' it up on the U.P. - that's Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Punkie is 6 and LOVED Kindergarten! Isaboo is 2 and she's a smiley whirl wind. We also call her Busy-Isi. This year we welcomed little Lorenzo to our family.

Life is great!

Christmas Music

When do you start listening? 

This year I started 2 days before Halloween. 

Some people think that if you start celebrating Christmas too early it overshadows Thanksgiving. 

I consider Christmas music part of Thanksgiving.

And though Thanksgiving is an important and cool holiday, I really think Christmas is the cooler more important holiday. 

Maybe people are just talking about the commercial side of Christmas? 

Anyway.

I'm trying to build up my Christmas music collection. 

Last year I realized that we didn't have nearly enough. 

My cousin Megan was very kind and sent us a Christmas mix CD. It's awesome!

I grew up listening to Barbara Streisand's Christmas Album and I love all the songs on that...

So, this year I purchased it. 

I listen to it several times a day.

I listen to all of our Christmas music all day. We are getting a pretty great variety. 

But, we still need more.

 What are some carols, hymns and Christmas songs that you love. 

What version?

Who is singing? 

Why do you love it?

Please give me all the details...and if you have a link for youtube or something, please share that too!

i'm not fully into my Christmas music yet (but i have started listening to some - i listen to it whenever i feel like it, even in the summer sometimes) (: so i'll probably have more recommendations later...

but off the top of my head - bing crosby and david bowie singing 'little drummer boy/peace on earth.' beautiful. i love that song.

i just remembered i have a list somewhere.

Some say it's never too early to start listening to Christmas music. I think it helps people feel the spirit if Christmas all the time. I have yet to start listening, but it won't be long.
