Okay, asides from my "Bah! Humbug-ness" I can't help but feel a little Christmassy.
I started uploading Christmas tracks to my I Pod last week and whenever I hear a bit of Bing Crosby singing White Christmas or Cliff Richard performing Little Town - I get snowflakes dancing before my eyes..
Seriously I do like Christmas music and today picked up a copy of Nat King Cole and Dean Martin's Christmas Album (or a variant of it) for a pound - what a bargain.
It got me thinking of what my favourite Christmas recordings are though and have compiled a list for Suite101.
Crystal Lewis' Holiday! and Jaci Velasquez Christmas always evoke Christmas memories from 2001 when Rachel and I were honeymooning in lovely cottages first in St.Ives and later in Reeth, Swaledale. I guess the warm jazz style of holiday sums up those warm memories best and remains a special album to me!
