My Top 5 Favorite Winter Holiday CDs

1. December by George Winston (always the first played of the season, usually the song "Thanksgiving" on Thanksgiving...
2. Soundtrack to a Charlie Brown Christmas by Vince Guaraldi (always brings to mind Linus' speech to Charlie Brown on what Christmas is about...never ceases to bring a tear to this pagan's eye)
3. Jethro Tull Christmas Album by Jethro Tull (a delightful mix of modern and remixed classics, with a couple of excellent pagan nods)
4. A Midnight Clear by John Nilson (pleasant piano versions of holiday standards..)
5. A Fresh Aire Christmas by Mannheim Steamroller (very haunting version of the Holly and the Ivy always makes my eyes tear)

I don't know any of these - shame on me!

Mannheim Steamroller is funny, though - as you know I live near Mannheim! ;-)

Except for the Jethro Tull, they're sorta new-agey... all very easy on the ears, except perhaps the Mannheim Stemaroller which is very up-beat...and yes the Mannheim irony had dawned on me :) Give them a listen if you have the chance!
