Looks like we have pretty much the same taste in music Margaret. :) My top 3 are Ella, Charlie Brown and the wonderful BNL Xmas album.I think this (BNL) is my all time fave Xmas cd! And my CB cd is also pretty scratched up from lots of loving. ;p They've all been in heavy rotation since I finally found them after searching for days- I had hidden them away last year and forgotten where I'd stashed them. How's that for efficiency? ;p

I love Charlie Pride's Christmas in My Home Town. It was the music I listened to as a child with my parents and siblings and now I listen to it with my family.

I also love the CD of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. I have it on my iPod and run to the story. At least no one can really see me saying every line with Boris Karloff. Hee, hee!

I also like the Beach Boys Christmas, Chicago 25, and George Straits Christmas album. How's that for variety?

Love your picks, Margaret! Isn't Christmas music just the best? One CD that I love is Ronnie Milsap's Christmas CD. My parents played it every Christmas growing up so it always reminds me of those great memories growing up. I also love Josh Groban's Noel CD and I'm not ashamed to say that Nsync'S Christmas CD is a lot of fun too! Ha! "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays" by Nsync is really fun! LOL! ;)

The Barenaked Ladies 'Jingle Bells' is my kids' favorite, too (they also like the Crash Test Dummies Cossack-style version). I've been listening to Emmylou Harris' Light of the Stable recently and the Roches 'We Three Kings' is on my wish list. For traditional music, I don't think you can beat "The Many Moods of Christmas" by the Robert Shaw Chorale (that was my favorite album in my parents' collection as a child and I still enjoy it today) and "The Joy of Christmas" by Leonard Bernstein with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
