Talked myself into it

So, Julie wants to know about my five favorite carols.

I almost begged off this one because I don't really think of myself as having favorite carols, and my Christmas CD collection has become kind of eclectic - to the point that I don't really even know what's what anymore. I generally just pick three discs to put in the stereo and hope for the best. Half the time I don't even know the title of the song I'm hearing.

Also? I'm a bit of a musical ignoramus and there's Julie over there talking about meter and alto lines and whatnot.'s all Bulgarian to me.

But then, when I begrudgingly gave it a little bit of thought, I did actually come up with some answers, so I guess I'll play after all.

  1. Carol I always loved as a kid (and still enjoy today): Little Drummer Boy

  2. Favorite children's Christmas carol: Frosty the Snowman (or is this my favorite children's Christmas special? Maybe both.)

  3. Favorite non-traditional Christmas music: Mannheim Steamroller. Hmm, I'll have to dig around for that one. I just realized I haven't heard them yet this year, probably because I have it on cassette tape and not CD. (Huh. Thought I had it, but I guess not.)

  4. Most movingest Christmas music: Mary's Song

  5. Guilty pleasure Christmas music: Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer

Special bonus answer: "Once a year is plenty, thanks" Christmas music: Jingle Cats (which, needless to say, has become the definitive Yuletide experience for the girls.)

Oh, and speaking of cats? And of pets dismantling holiday decor? Yikes.

Little Drummer Boy! One more thing we share in common. My childhood favorite too. My new favorite is Mary's Boy Child done in Raggaei
