Fa La La La La

Lucy Van Pelt: Say, by the way, can you play "Jingle Bells?"
[Schroeder proceeds to play "Jingle Bells", which sounds like a traditional grand piano] Lucy Van Pelt: [interrupting] No, no. I mean "Jingle Bells." You know, deck them halls and all that stuff?
[Schroeder begins to play again, with the piano sounding like an organ]
Lucy Van Pelt: [interrupting again] No, no. You don't get it at all. I mean "Jingle Bells." You know, Santa Claus and ho-ho-ho, and mistletoe and presents to pretty girls.
[gazes lovingly at Schroeder, who then out of frustration taps one key of the piano while playing "Jingle Bells," which sounds like a child's toy piano] Lucy Van Pelt: That's it!
[Schroeder turns a few unplanned flips from Lucy's reaction]

So what's your favorite Christmas music?  I'm like Lucy.  I tend to like the traditional, timeless, classic stuff.  Simple music.  Silent Night, Joy to the World, Angels We Have Heard on High, Jingle Bells....and such.  I remember listening to the Carpenter's Christmas when I was a kid.  And did you know there's "A Christmas Together" by John Denver and The Muppets?!  (Did you know that Dad and Mom?)   Perhaps I'm just a little nostalgic.  But there are also some more modern Christmas songs I like. 

Head over to Amazon and check out their 25 Days of Free Holiday music.  I'm downloading a few goodies.  Plus a few other ones.  If you've ever had trouble unpacking a toy with all those twist ties and plastic things that hold it in the box, you'll love "Toy Packaging" by Sara Groves.  I love that song!  And bonus....it's free.  And don't you just love singing vegetables?  Really, I don't know why...but I do.  Probably more than my kids.  You can download the whole album "The Incredible Singing Christmas Tree" by VeggieTales for.....get this.....FAH-REE.  That's free as in no money!  Gotta love a singing vegetable.  I'd also recommend checking out the "Believe in Christmas" holiday sampler.....all free!

I'm softly blasting the Christmas music right now and all season long.  I love Christmas music!  I'd love to hear what your favorites are....go on....you can share!  Merry Christmas!
