Happy Holidays everyone!
Like most families, every year at about this time we all get together to celebrate Christmas. I have so many warm memories of Christmas growing up. With all the baking, decorating the tree, watching seemingly endless movies. There is one thing my family does that I remember most above all others, that is music. I am lucky in that my mother and father loved music of all kinds, genres and eras. I remember listening to the Beatles, Frank Sinatra, Pink Floyd, Barbara Streisand, Kool and The Gang and much more. Nearly everything we did as a family involved music of some sort. Even more so at Christmas time. We would start generally the first Sunday in December with Christmas tree decorating, and the remaining weekend with baking and visiting and such.
Skip forward a few years, I am grown up, married and have 2 awesome kids of my own who enjoy music as much as I did growing up. Not to mention a lovely wife who continually impresses me with her incredible tolerance of me.
I’ve been putting together a list of my favorite Christmas songs for years. I decided this year I would share my 2012 list with you all.
I hope you will enjoy it.
