Sounds of the Season

We just got back from the annual Christmas tradition of attending the Utah Chamber Artists Christmas Concert. The Utah Chamber Artists is a fantastic chamber choir and orchestra directed by Barlow Bradford, and they do several concerts a year, including a Christmas one the week after Thanksgiving. My parents get us tickets every year, and it always does a great job of kicking off the Christmas season. There's something about Christmas music that gets you in the mood for Christmas (for both the secular and spiritual aspects of it). The concert was great again this year, and I came right home and put on some Christmas music. I'm excited to break out my favorite Christmas albums: the Niel Diamond Christmas album (great Christmas music with a Jewish flare) and the John Denver and The Muppets Christmas album (brings back great memories; my parents had this on a record when I was very little). What are some of your favorite Christmas albums?

The first Christmas song to be played in our home (for as long as I can remember) is Elvis' Blue Christmas!!

That's a classic.

N*Sync has an excellent Christmas album. One of my favorites.

Ian, the concert was great. I had no idea you even owned a Neil Diamond Christmas album! I love Harry Conick Jr's album. I've never owned it myself, but I had a roommate who played it all season long during my sophomore year.

Darth Spencer, I like your picture.

Nat King Cole's Christmas album is smooth. It also doesn't feel like christmas until I hear Jackson 5 and Chipmunks christmas music.
