Music Scripture doesn't say it be we know those angels were singing at the manger. And music has been the heart of Christmas ever since.

Custom Holiday Music Collections

Does anyone else put a personal CD together of their favorite holiday music? Making my own personal selected song list was the best thing, especially for having it all on one disc together without having to deal with tons of CDs just for a couple of songs and also for certain songs that you just cant find in stores. I can just put that one disc in and its all set!

I just made mine today, but wont listen to the full thing until November 1st, lol, I'm good that way, it helps keep the excitement. I have 25 songs/tracks on it, runs about 78 minutes long. The only other CDs I use with it is during the season is Brenda Lee, Pan Pipes, a general Coca Cola XMas CD and Kenny G.

Every year I create a new CHRISTmas CD with new CHRISTmas songs, but I didn't do it this year yet. Don't have time anymore.

What type of songs do you use, carols, or the likes of Shakin' Stevens etc? I do that aswell, normally the first half are carols, and the seocnd half are more modern.

Here's my track listing, it’s a good mix, but only one song has no lyrics:

Rudolph
Holly Jolly Xmas
Somewhere In my Memory-Home Alone
Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy
Santa Baby
Do They Know Its Xmas
Xmas Baby Please Come Home
Put a Little Love In Your Heart-Scrooged
Silver Bells
Believe-Polar Express
So this Is Xmas
Happy Xmas
Where Are You Xmas
Mele-kalikimaka
Hark the Herald Angel
Little Drummer Boy
Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire
Silver Bells
All I want For Xmas Is You
Carol Of The Bells
Let It Snow
Have Yourself A Merry Little Xmas
Here Comes Santa Claus
Christmas Canon
Christmas Canon Rock

And like I mentioned, I use some other CD’s as well I’ve picked up over the years and they all play together as I have one of those players that fits 5 CDs so that once one CD is done it goes on to the next.

I just made my Halloween CD too! I didn’t think I could do so much for Halloween music. Have some Elvira songs, stuff from Hocus Pocus, the Halloween Theme, Phantom of the Opera, Monster Mash, Haunted Mansion, Beetlejuice, Catwoman, Addams Family, Munsters, Thriller, Nightmare Before Xmas, etc

I make a new christmas cd each year to give as gifts, along with other stuff. Well I just started this last year and I´m planning on having a different theme each year.

My christmas cd last year 2006:
Gabriel´s message - Sting
Have yourself a merry little christmas - Bing Crosby
It wont seem like christmas - Loretta Lynn
It won´t seem like christmas (without you) - Elvis Presley
O come O come Emanuel - Brothers Figaro Orchestra
Silver Bells - Dean Martin
God rest ye merry gentlemen - Ella Fitzgerald
(There´ll be) Peace in the valley - Elvis Presley
The secret of christmas - Ella Fitzgerald
Pat-A-Pan/While shepards watched - Bing Crosby
Blue christmas - Dean Martin
I belive - Elvis Presley
The Cristmas song - Ella Fitzgerald
Hvít jól - Ellý Vilhjálms og Ragnar Bjarnason (White christmas by the icelandic Ella and Bing)
O holy night - Tracy Chapman
If every day was like christmas - Elvis Presley
What can I give - Mahalia Jackson
Jólaljós skćrt - Haukur Morthens
Mama liked the roses - Elvis Presley
Heims um ból - Fóstbrćđur (Silent night by a menschoir)

This years cd will be lighter so my family and friends can listen to it all december.
