Love Kathy Mattea's rendition of "Mary, Did You Know?"

As for groups, I like Alabama. Especially their 1985 album called "Christmas." There's nothing more cheery and Christmassy as "Thistlehair the Christmas Bear" on that album.
Katie, That is so funny, we were just trying to find that cd online as it is(or was,when he was little) my son's favorite song!! We actually have it on vinyl.
What a blessing to have a December baby!! Even after they are all grown up.

Phil, I thought that was "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire"?!?! Do you mean I've been singing it wrong all these years??

Christmas music is my favorite. Luciano Pavarotti's "Oh Holy Night" cd with the Vienna Boy's Choir plays constantly this time of year.

Also Loreena Mckennitt's "God Rest You Merry Gentlemen" (keep listening for a minute)

And Bing Crosy/David Bowie's "Little Drummer Boy"


And of course, my absolute favorite - John Lennon's "Happy Christmas"


Hope ya'll enjoy these, too.

Katie, that's such a sweet and lovely story! I have a Christmas baby, too. He was due on Christmas Day but thankfully waited until early, early morning on the 27th. He was in such a hurry to get here, he was born at home and his name is Nicholas Noel! He's my best gift ever, too. My father died Christmas morning three years ago so I was especially thankful for Nick's birthday two days later - it reminded all of us of the joyous things in life.

Fisher's Mom, I have always loved John Lennon's "Happy Christmas". It brings back bittersweet memories though.

Whenever someone asks me"What kind of music do you like?" I always answer "Christmas Music." I do get wierd looks in June.
I could listen to Chrismas Music 365 days a year and not get tired of them. Some of my favorites are any that Julie Andrews has recorded, or Burl Ives.
But I would have to say my be all end all favorite is the version of Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer that has all the funny sound effects it it. It just cracks me up!!!

Two of my favorites are "Who would believe" by the Statler Bros ,and "Little Drummer Boy" by David Bowie and Bing Crosby. I can listen to both over and over.
