Advent Calendar - Christmas Music

What songs did your family listen to during Christmas?
Oh, I think the usual, "Silent Night", "White Christmas", anything by Bing Crosby or Perry Como, loved their holiday specials.  When I was little, a "new Christmas" song just came out and I remember driving my mom insane by playing it over and over, "Christmas Don't Be Late" by Alvin and the Chipmunks.  I think we wore out a phonograph needle.

Today, I really can't listen to that song without thinking of mom holding her ears and walking away into another room.  I have favorite Christmas songs that I start playing the day after Thanksgiving.  "Merry Christmas Darling" by the Carpenters, "Once Upon A Christmas" CD by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton.  A few years ago I actually had to buy a new cassette because I wore my first one out.

This year I bought The Christmas CD by the cast of Glee.  My sister got me hooked on the show each Tuesday night.  Since I love Christmas songs, I had to buy the album.  It's in my car so I can listen to it on the way home from work and I've ripped it to my iPod.  I don't usually buy Cd's during the year, but come Christmas time and I'm looking and listening when I'm in a mall.
