Advent Calendar Day 21 ~ Christmas Music

Much of the music I listened to growing up during Christmas time were tunes sung by Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and that era of entertainers.

One year for Christmas I received an album of Elvis's and I thought I was hot stuff. I think I listened to that album until I couldn't play it any longer. Was it Christmas music? No, but I had to throw this in!

I enjoyed listening to all of the traditional songs while growing up. My favorite song was White Christmas. Growing up listening to music during the holidays has always put me "in the mood." I especially love listening to Christmas music when I am cleaning or wrapping gifts.

The song I remember most that came out that my family had so much fun with was, "Grandma got run over by a reindeer." We all made fun of the song and even my grandma laughed like crazy when she heard it. I think we all walked around with that song in our heads for a long long time.

Burl Ives, Christmas shows and specials on TV all brought more tunes into our house. I do miss having little ones in our home to watch those programs. I just don't watch TV much, although I have caught a few of the Hallmark Christmas specials this year.

Christmas morning when we open our gifts there is Christmas music playing, it is tradition. That along with "the fire" on the TV channel. This makes it seems like it is really cold outside; hence Christmas time.

My favorite song this year? Holly Jolly Christmas, you can listen here! And by all means, make sure you all have a Holly Jolly Christmas this year! Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
