This Week: Christmas Songs!
This is the Official Christmas Tree of Stockholm...
Now when we finally have reached the month of December it feels appropriate to talk about Christmas music!
Christmas music is such lovely music that you can only listen to but once a year. Oh, I suppose that it could be a good thing, actually. Otherwise the music wouldn't be so special, right? And you would suffer a serious X-mas overload.
Anyway, there is a station here in DC that blast out Christmas music from mid-November until midnight on Christmas Day. They play the same songs over and over again, but I cannot help but listen to that station every single time I am out driving. Here at home I make sure that i have the CD player loaded with Christmas CD's, the same thing with my iPod, the Christmas list is getting played time and again...
Peter is not liking it as much as I do. Whenever he has a chance he changes to another station, another cd etc. Oh well! I can admit that I am obsessed.
So, let's make a list of our favorite Christmas songs. Here are the once that I love! American and English songs today. I promise that I will post my favorite Swedish Christmas songs in a separate post later on this week. I think I can post even more songs on my Swedish list. But here is the American and English list:
¤ Oh, Holy Night...This is probably my number one favorite.
¤ White Christmas....Need I say more?
¤ I'll be home for Christmas...Many sentimental thoughts go to the North when I hear this song.
¤ Winter Wonderland...I know, I know...Kinda' sorta' cheesy, but I still like it.
¤ The Christmas song, (Chestnuts roasting on an open fire) ...I prefer that song sung by Nat King Cole.
¤ Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
¤ Oh, come all ye faithful...Wonderful! Especially sung by a church choir, or by the whole congregation, for that matter.
¤ Let it Snow, Let it Snow...Nice, cheery song!
¤ Last Christmas...If you want to see a video on this one scroll down on this page, and you'll find it. LOVE IT!!!
¤ Driving Home For Christmas...See Above.
¤ Christmas Time is Here...The classic Charlie Brown! I love!!!
I think that is all I can think of for now, but I am sure that I've forgotten a few!
So, what are your favorites?
It is less than two weeks before Karolina and I are heading to Sweden now. Peter will arrive on the Dec, 23. How time flies! AND, how i am NOT ready! I'll have some serious shopping left to do. Not that I mind it, but I'll just have to go Tysons or Dulles Town Center soon, or Reston Town Center for that matter.
It IS the most wonderful time of the year!
