  1. Happy Holidays!

    Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win.

    My favorite song of the season is still “The Christmas Song” sung by Nat King Cole. There is just something about that smooth baritone that just makes the season for me.

  2. OMG, OMG, OMG – someone else who likes the Trans-Siberan Orchestra. I love that song too. (My favorite)

    Actually it is funny because I have never heard of them before until a week ago. My two daughters set me up for christmas. One comes over and starts telling me about this christmas music by this orchestra and that I definitely have to listen to it. So she pulls it up on YouTube and I am in awe and love instantly. My other daughter calls while we are watching this video and I tell them that I am buying this album now and then while checking out I see other albums from the Orchestra and ending up buying the christmas album and Beethoven's last Night Album. If you havent seen the video's you must check them out – absolutely fantastic and the music is wonderful. While buying the albums the girls are talking on the phone whispering to each other, I pay no attention because I am putting credit card info in to buy the albums.

    later that evening when checking my email I get an email from my daughters and they bought two tickets attached to the email for the Trans-Siberian Orchestra consert the 21st of December in Austin TX.

    Them little shits so filled me out – I would of never guest thay would of done something like that, I totally love it and am so excited.

    Have a Merry Christmas

  5. My favorite Christmas song has always been The First Noel. Not sure why…probably because it's in my range to sing. After the tree was up and my grandparents came for the holidays, we would sit around the tree with the lights out and the tree lit. We would each get to choose a song to sing and mine was always The First Noel.

  6. I tend to enjoy the Christmas songs that are geared more towards children. My faves are probably Frosty the Snowman & The Chipmunks Christmas song.
    Have a safe & wonderful holiday season!
