It’s Christmas-time again! We love Christmas in our home: the glitter, the red, the green, the candles, the New England Village, the smells, the cookies, and especially…THE SONGS!
I am one of those folks who absolutely refuses to allow any Christmas music until the day after Thanksgiving. I want this time to remain magical and special for my family. But once the turkey has been put away, we drag out the Christmas tunes and play them LOUDLY! My father blessed us several years ago with a Christmas mix album that he created. These are songs that marked my Christmas as a child and they always make me smile when they show up amidst all the music that hubby and I have gathered in the 19 years we have been married. We also make it a point to add some new pieces every year to keep the music fresh.
I would like to share with you some of our old and new favorites!
