I know. Christmas can bring out the best and worst of all of us. Often on the same day and potentially at the same time. Traditions are always a part of this time of year. Maybe you play games on Christmas Eve. Maybe you go caroling. Or maybe you live like a Bing Crosby Christmas special and sing around the ol’ grand piano.
Does your annual gathering of the clans in December have any specific musical traditions? Mine does.
Back in 1995 I bought a cd called Cool Christmas. With artists like Barenaked Ladies, Lou Reed, Aztec Camera, Flaming Lips and many more, it was a no brainer. I have played this cd every year since. I love it and the family loves it. I’ll add a few more examples from the album below, including the all time favourite for us and likely you as well.
So how about you? What are your musical Christmas traditions?
And this is the best Christmas song of all time!
