As much as I fancy myself a crank and a cynic, I am unashamedly, unabashedly, nostalgically in love with certain Christmas albums. It reminds me of winter and Vermont and childhood and all good things. Here are five I cannot live without:
The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole
A Charlie Brown Christmas by Vince Guaraldi
A Christmas Together by John Denver and The Muppets
The Little Drummer Boy by Adolphe Adam
Little Drummer Boy: Christmas Favorites by the Vienna Boys Choir
And . . . I must break down and buy Sufjan Stevens' album Songs for Christmas this year, too!
I'd love to hear what others listen to during the holiday season.
