Christmas Songs

I love Christmas songs, but usually by the time Christmas rolls around I am ready for them to stop playing for another year. This is not the case with Clay Aiken's Merry Christmas with Love album, I have it downloaded in my vehicle. Don't ask me why, because I have no idea! I find my self listening to his smooth tones at various times of the year. I know that comes under the "crazy old lady" category.
Songs on the album:
 O Holy Night - Winter Wonderland - Silent Night
 Hark The Herald Angels Sing / O Come All Ye Faithful
 Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
  Mary Did You Know - Joy To The World - The Christmas Song 
Don't Save It All For Christmas Day
 Merry Christmas With Love
Sleigh Ride - What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?

  1. I've been listening to the classic Christmas station on Pandora since after Halloween. I absolutely love Christmas music. My favorites are ones sang years ago by people like Louis Armstrong.
