When December arrives, my iPod, CD's and radio are all tuned to holiday music all the time. Since I only listen to it for the month of December, it always seems like way to soon the time is over and it is gone again. I probably should not admit to this, but I have 612 holiday songs on my iPod. One and a half days of music without listening to the same song twice.
I love the traditional favorites - Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Michael Buble. I also like music of all genres from George Winston's "Holly & the Ivy" to Bare Naked Ladies & Sarah MacLachlan's "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" to Kanye West's "Christmas in Harlem".
Each year I try to find a new CD to add to my collection. Last year I found my new favorite from Beth Twist's Heartstring Samplery blog - Dave Barnes' "Very Merry Christmas". Now I am looking for a new favorite for this year and would love to hear what your favorite CD is.
Please leave a comment on this post or drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your favorite song/CD and I'll enter you in my Christmas giveaway.
This giveaway includes: a $20 Winding Vine Designs giftcard for use in my Etsy shop or on my TDIPT Mercantile page, a little giftcard pouch that I knitted and felted, a prim reindeer, a sweet little star pot ornament with a little battery powered candle inside (created by my SIL Joy of Joyfully Yours) and a Blessings tag/ornament also created by Joy.
I'll draw a name next Saturday and hopefully your package will arrive before Christmas.
I can't wait to hear about your favorites!
"In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”
