I personally love the Christmas album by Harry Connick Jr. For some reason, the big band sound makes the songs seem more "Christmasy" to me. And of course, I always love the set of Christmas hymns in my hymnbook.

Are you talking about the "When my Heart Finds Christmas" album? I have that one & love it!! My boys esp. love the "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers" song!
I guess my favorite album would be Bing Crosbys "White Christmas", although it brings back bittersweet memories for me. My Mom would listen to that record every year while making her christmas cookies & decorating the house, now that shes gone its sometimes difficult to enjoy it.

I know how you feel Kathe-"Please come home for Christmas" (by the Eagles, Bon Jovi and countless others) does the same thing to me.

I absolutely love that song, and I can't bear to listen to it.

Barbara, I have this one too and absolutely love it. And hey, they are all Canadian!!!!! The Ladies are absolutely wonderful live and I actually got to meet Sarah MacLachlan a few years ago. Her (now ex) husband is good friends with a good friend of mine who is also a musician. They were over for a Christmas party and the singing was incredible! She is very down to earth.

I have the Harry Connick one too and agree B's Girl, that the big band sound is great.

I love Christmas music but do not start it until December 1st, though DH puts our lights up as of November 1st, inside and out! I have so many favourite Christmas CD's from old Classics like Ella Fitzgerald to the Christmas Soundtrack from Alli McBeal. But one of my all time favourites is by a Christian artist named Bryan Duncan.

I have one of his also and when I pop it in the CD player in my car and Happy Ho Ho Ho To You comes on I sing it as loud as I can. My son just kinda sinks down in his seat like, "Why do Mom's have to be so embarrassing?"

I love Christmas music too, but only during the last week leading up to it.

I stay away from shopping centers and big box stores from the end of November thru the end of December.

From Thanksgiving to Christmas I listen to Christmas almost exclusively, and I only wear Christmas earrings (yep, I have a lot of them).

Also, many years I pick a week in July and watch all of our Christmas DVDs! I need that Christmas "fix" halfway through the year!
