Advent Calendar: Christmas Music

December 21 – Christmas Music
What songs did your family listen to during Christmas? Did you ever go caroling? Did you have a favorite song?

When I was a kid, I remember listening to Elvis Presley’s Blue Christmas Album and Alvin and the Chipmunks. Didn’t most kids in the 1980’s listen to the Chipmunks at Christmas? I shudder to think of how many times I listened to that cassette tape.

I know that we caroled once or twice as a kid.  I can’t seem to recall what for though – maybe with Girl Scouts or youth group?  I do remember caroling with my German and French classes in high school.  They went together – and I just happened to be in both of them.  I always loved languages. We sang “Stille Nacht”, “O Tannenbaum” and “Ode an die Freude”, amongst others.

I posted some of my favorite Christmas songs on my Blog Caroling post, last week.

Here are a few more from Enya, which I think are absolutely enchanting.   They aren’t what I listened to as a kid, but maybe I will start a new tradition. 🙂
