No one should be allowed to (let alone want to) listen to Christmas music before Thanksgiving. Click here to read more about my love-hate relationship with holiday music.
One of our newer traditions is to purchase (at least) one album a year to listen to while we decorate our tree. Here is the list thus far (keep in mind that I am usually focusing on artists, genres, and songs that my wife would enjoy (I do not endorse or enjoy some of these selections).
- 2012: Lady Antebellum (country – ugh) and Holidays Rule (so creative)
- 2011: She & Him (I love her voice)
- 2010: Glee (what was I thinking?)
- 2009: Andrew Boccelli (his voice is something else – and the duet with Muppets is classic)
- 2008: Harry Connick Jr. (I love my wife THIS much)
- 2007: Josh Groban
We also buy singles throughout the season to supplement our collection. We now have over 18 hours worth. Pretty good considering we had just 4 CDs six years ago.
All of the above-listed albums were released on the years that we downloaded them. Any classics that you have on your list that we should consider adding to ours?
