it’s beginning to look a lot like christmas…
(except my xanga site still looks extremely fall-ish. i’ve decided to at least wait until december 1st before doing a revamp…)
making pumpkin pie in my pajamas, with christmas music resounding from the living room stereo, has got to be one of the funnest festive things ever! (well, that and our long standing tradition of eating pumpkin pie for breakfast the day after thanksgiving)
speaking of music – music is most definitely one of my favorite aspects of christmas. have you ever noticed how many christmas carols are like hymns? at first they just seem like liturgical words that we’ve known since we were 3 years old, but then you listen more closely and pay attention to the words and you realize the depth of meaning and immense spirituality (in the christian sense of the word!) they have.
and then there’s other music. last night i was with some friends and we were discussing the worst christmas songs out there. i think “santa baby,” “feliz navidad,” and that one that goes “last christmas i gave you my heart, and the very next day you gave it away” were the top three worst… yeee.
and then there’s the wonderful, seasonal favorites that bring waves of nostaglia everytime i hear them. and since i know you are all just dying of curiosity, here are my top 5 favorite christmas albums, in no particular ranking:
so – what are y’all’s favorite christmas cds?!?!
