Several years ago I believe I received a re-gifted Christmas present with the Elvis Christmas CD. The person who gave it to me either 1) did not care for Elvis; 2) thought they were pulling a fast one on me; and 3) certainly never listened to it because they would have never given it up (IMO). Basically, I have the "last laugh" and very thankful that I do!
In addition to Elvis though, I feel compelled to include my other favorites too. This list may include your favorites as well: Carpenter's Double Set (traditional carols and contemporary Christmas music); Amy Grant's Christmas; Kenny G Holiday music (clarinet instrumental); George Winston's Windam Hill "December" (piano solos) and the classic Bing Crosby's "Merry Christmas"!
BSoleille! The bright side of listening to Holiday music for the next three weeks.
