Christmas Music

I love Christmas music. I know people get annoyed when Christmas music starts playing before Thanksgiving, but I've decided it really isn't a big deal. I can still get excited about Thanksgiving while hearing Jingle Bells piped in through a store's sound system, and the other day, this is what I said to my wife:

"I don't think I have a problem with Christmas starting early. I am just fine eating turkey in one room with the Christmas tree in the other."

To me the two holidays blend together because one is about gratitude and the other is about the birth of the Savior.

My point is, it's not a big deal to me. I'll even secretly listen to Christmas music in July. Last year, we bought Sarah McLachlan's Christmas album, and it was March before I could bring myself to stop listening to it. There are a couple of songs I REALLY like (Don't mind the videos. I guess the guy who posted these just had a bunch of random pictures of Sarah McLachlan).

This one is a variation on "What Child is This" and I think I like it even more than the original:

This one took me a minute to get used to, but it grew on me and now I can't stop listening to it (again, it's a variation, and you'll have to hang on for a minute for the beat to kick in):

Any other holiday favorites?

Love love love Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas is you." I have already listened to it like a bazillion times.

Was it you who didn't ever like "Wonderful Christmas Time"? Someone there at Connect always hated that song, and I always liked it. That one radio station would play it about 3x per day for the duration of the season, and it was awesome :-).

Dun: UGH, I hate that song. HATE. I've never had such violent tendencies as when I hear it on the radio. Oh, and I vividly remember finding you like it. It's ok, we can still be friends ...

Just don't play that song in my presence. :)
