Mama Kat Thursday: Top 5 Christmas Songs

The Mama Kat topic to this week is:
My top 5 favorite Christmas songs!

Winter BeautyI love all Christmas music, especially the classic hymns. However, if you make me pick and choose, I do have a couple favorite songs and 3 favorite albums:

#1 on my Christmas hit list is: Carol of the Bells!
I love that one. Oddly it was the winter theme song for Andre Champagne & Cold Duck in TV ads when I was growing up.
It's not an easy one to find on 
Christmas albums.

#2 is: O Come, O Come Emmanuel! 
I love that one because it's in a key I can sing!. I'm a lower end alto---if I can manage to carry a tune, though I'm pretty good on the Christmas hymns. Singing isn't really my thing, but if I must, I prefer Christmas tunes.

#3 is the first of my favorite albums: A Charlie Brown Christmas by The Vince Guaraldi Trio! 
The best Christmas music and best Christmas special ever!

#4 album is Trans-Siberian Orchestra!
If you've never heard it, you're missing something! It's a mix of modern and classic done with a full orchestra and electric guitar!
Totally awesome!

#5 is every single Christmas album my Mannheim Steamroller!
We have them all and they're amazing!
That's my list! 
I've got the Trans-Siberian Orchestra playing now!
Here's wishing you the merriest of Christmas holidays and a most joyous New Year!
