Christmas TogetherWe're here year round and even though we are scattered all over the world and most of us have never met face-to-face we find ways to celebrate the season together. From our annual Christmas exchanges to scheduled chats our Christmasing together is discussed here.
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas!!! I love the happier lyrics version, not the original sadder version. Too me it sums up what the season is about fro me. Putting up a tree, enjoying the good times with friends and family, good food and simple fun.....just a simple "merry little Cristmas." We never spend much money except on decorations and food...dont go all out on the gifts...so to me this song just fits. Also i was a teenager when the Pretenders version came out on the Very Special Christmas album and it is one of my favorite versions.
If were talking carols not songs then i have 3 main- Hark the herald, the first noel and God bless ye merry gentlemen.
Not a specific reason but they remind me of when i was a child and that brings back very, very happy memories of christmas. Also as there traditional carols they give a real feel to christmas-i like tradition .
I can quite happily sit in my house with the TV off and just some carols on at christmas time. Especialy with the dark nights and windy,wet weather-realy gets me in the festive spirit.
I love them all actually!!! Some of my favorites are Hark the Herald Angels Sing, Ding Dong Merrily on High, Carol of the Bells, Joy to the World, Mary's Boy Child, Joy to the World and more! Hark the Herald Angels Sing is one of my favorite scenes in A Charlie Brown Christmas, which is the picture of my signature. Charlie Brown is finally happy and knows what Christmas is all about and they sing this song around the tree! All the songs give me a nice peaceful feeling of the holiday.
I would have to say mine would be Sleigh Ride simply because I can remember being about 8 years old, in the dead heat of summer, and listening to a record that had this song on it. There was a little sheet attached that had the lyrics. I listened to it over and over. Even as a child, I was looking forward to Christmas in the middle of the summer. As an adult, I think it just paints a wonderful picture of a Christmas I would like to have in my lifetime.
