Christmas Music

Time to take a brake from Oregon Duck Football and their going to the National Championship for Christmas. I LOVE CHRISTMAS! It's one of the greatest traditions of Western Civilisation.

One of things I love about Christmas is Christmas music. Every year after Christmas I lament that I didn't listen to more Christmas music before the big day. For the last few years in December we have been listening to Christmas CD's in our car on the way to work. My favorite songs in no particular order are:

Pop Christmas Music:

"White Christmas", by Bing Crosby from the movie "White Christmas"(1954) and "Holiday Inn"(1942)

"I'll Be Home for Christmas" by Bing Crosby

"Little Drummer Boy" by Bing Crosby and David Bowie

"Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas",by Judy Garland from the movie "Meet Me in St Louis"(1944)

"The Christmas Song" by Nat King Cole

"It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" by Andy Williams

"Aspenglow", by John Denver

"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" by Gene Autry

"Frosty the Snow Man" by Gene Autry

"(There's No Place Like) Home for the Holidays" by Perry Como

"Silent Night" sung by the troops at every Bob Hope Christmas show at the end with the cast and crew.

"I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" by 13 year old Jimmy Boyd

Traditional Christian Christmas Music:. (I am not religious but this is beautiful music that everyone can enjoy.)

"O Come All Ye Faithful"

"Away In A Manger"

"It Came Upon A Midnight Clear"

"Joy To The World"

Old English Christmas "Sing Along" Songs:

"Deck The Halls"

Merry Christmas!
