Where This Meets That
HO! HO! HO! When celebrating traditions around Christmas, we can’t forget the soundtrack! The contemporary Christmas music can’t hold an Advent candle to the old classics.
Old Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, Perry Como and company are rooted in my Christmas spirit like a gloriously lit Christmas tree, so what better subject for today’s Friday Five! Here are a few of my favorites. What are yours?
1. The Most Wonderful Time of the Year – Andy Williams What a joyous tribute and reminder!
2. A Holly Jolly Christmas – Burl Ives How can you not have a holly jolly Christmas with this song playing?
3. O Holy Night – Nat King Cole Pure majesty! Cole’s voice is pure silk.
4. Silent Night – Nat King Cole Perhaps my favorite Christmas song, and Cole, of course, delivers.
5. The Littlest Angel – Bing Crosby Bing tells this tale beautifully. A different twist on the “The Little Drummer Boy” theme.
