Caffienated Randomness - "Sleigh Bells Ring, Are You Listening...."

This week, our Caffeinated Chieftain has asked what our favourite Christmas Songs are. To tell you the truth I haven't met a Christmas song I didn't like. However, I'll give you my top three (you can even dance to two!).

The song that reminds of Reason for the season is Who is This Child. It reminds us why He came and what the purpose of Christmas is.

My favourite childhood Christmas song is Suzy Snowflake. I had a record (yes Virginia there were big large black disks that spun around and made music) that had numerous Christmas songs by artists from the 50s and 60s. Growing up where we received little or now snow (I can count on one hand how many White Christmas' we had) I could imagine the little mischievous snowflake calling me to come out and play.

The other Christmas song that I love to hear is of course Elvis' Blue Christmas. Who cannot listen to this song with singing "wohoho?" This was the song we often played while decorating the tree.

Now go post your favourite Christmas songs at Under Grace Over Coffee.

Oh my goodness. I remember Suzy Snowflake from when I was a little girl. In the 80's my Mum was a record fanatic and she had all of these old Christmas records (including the Alvin and the brother and I wore that one out!) Thank you for reminding me! And Rosemary Clooney's voice...amazing.

I love all three of your picks...I am going to go find them on iTunes!
