Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. (Calvin Coolidge)
I love Christmas music. As soon as we were finished with our Thanksgiving leftovers, I started pulling together mixes and new stations on Pandora. There's something about holiday tunes that gets me in the spirit and lifts my mood.
I've also made a playlist with a few of my favorites for this time of year. I'll have this list playing in the background while finishing up our Christmas cards, wrapping gifts and baking cookies. All the links lead to iTunes, so head over and have a listen!
Linus & Lucy / Vince Guaraldi Trio The Christmas Waltz / She & Him Winter Song / Sara Bareilles & Ingrid Michaelson Sleigh Ride / Ella Fitzgerald Jingle Bells / James Taylor Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! / Aaron Neville Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree / Brenda Lee 'Zat You, Santa Claus? / Louis Armstrong Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas / Frank Sinatra White Christmas / Bing Crosby December / Norah Jones Silent Night / Sarah Brightman Holly Jolly Chirstmas / Michael Bublé
What are your favorite holiday songs, albums and/or Pandora stations? I would love for you to share in the comments below!
