Oh I almost forgot-the song "Pretty Paper" I don't know who did it originally, but we have a version by Reverend Horton Heat (seriously) that is very nice.

Oh and he also covers Buck Owens "Santa looked a lot like daddy"-that one always puts a smile on my face too.

Barbara, way to support those Canadian artists!

i bought the first gift last night but no music. can't even remember what i have. i have one of those that hold 150 cds so would have to scroll through.

sewing gifts have to be bought early, so i can get them done. got stuff for a baby quilt for youngest great granddaughter . christmas eve is her birthday, very premature one . she is doing just great, our christmas miracle we call georgia.

I usually buy gifts throughout the year when I see something someone will like. I never wrap them until I am ready to send them though, as I would forget what half of the stuff was!

Willie Nelson's version of Pretty Paper is nice too.

I can not tolerate Christmas music of any kind. I lost the love of my life during the holiday season and it brings back to many bad memories. I can't wait till all of the ho,ho hos are gone from the sean. Yes I am very bitter and a first class grinch.

I'm sorry Dave. It must be hard on you. We lost my mom right before Christmas, and James lost his mom at Christmas and his dad at Thanksgiving (all several or more years ago). We love to remember the good years before those bad ones. Our moms each made Christmas really good in our homes.

I love most Christmas music, I'm not too selective. I love the traditional songs like Drummer Boy, White Christmas, Silent Night, and really love Mary Did You Know - though I'm not very religious AT all! I could listen to Christmas music probably all year long, there's a certain warmth that I get from it. Even for people that don't believe in Jesus, or really get why Christmas is celebrated (without getting into the whole man-made "traditions") it seems to me that people are friendlier during the holidays, they are a little more respectful and courteous to their fellow human beings - it's nice to see. :-)

I have such a diversity of Christmas music, anywhere from Bing Crosby, Trisha Yearwood, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Alan Jackson and SO many more! I love it all!!!
