'Jingle bells jingle bells'- I learned this song when I was in nursery. This song always reminds me Christmas.

Barbara Streisand, The Best Gift.

I was originally told I couldn't have any children. My first child was born December 5th, which made this song perfect for me. The words still make me cry.

See the lyrics here.
"As a girl I had zero interest in the stove." - Julia Child
This is real inspiration. Look what Julia became!

In addition to the ones I mentioned, the song "The Christmas Shoes" has a special place in my heart. The first time I ever heard it was on the way to the airport the day after my mom's funeral in December 2000. I know that for a lot of people that might make it a bad song for them, but for me it just brings back memories of how wonderful my mom was, and how (as in the song), "Mama made Christmas good at our house."

You sound like me texasgirl! I have almost as many Christmas CDs as regular ones and they are at least a third of my mp3 player. I'd never be able to list them all! I will say that In the Bleak Midwinter and Little Drummer Boy are two of my all time faves.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

"Merry Christmas, Darling" by the Carpenters is very special to me. Makes me weepy, every time I hear it.

"Mary's Boy Child" by Boney M is my favorite happy Christmas song.

Josh Groban's "O Holy Night" thrills me to my toes.

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.
