Christmas Party: Music and Movies

<span class=

Christmas Music and Movies... what a great topic! There are many of both that I love and help me get in the Christmas Spirit!

There are SOOO many wonderful Christmas songs/cds - especially the classic songs and classic singers (Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole)... but I want to highlight a newer Christmas CD that remains one of my all-time favorites.

The Christmas Shoes is a great song, but I also love Christmas Carol, and Sing Noel... these songs sing Christmas to me.

Other sounds that get me in the Christmas mood is the cd of Mona Shores High School Singing Christmas Tree: The Tallest Singing Christmas Tree in America -- and I sang in it 3 seasons.The choir is HUGE, music is beautiful, the students work so hard, the discipline to participate in this spectacle is intense... and the memories are priceless!

For the movie I'd like to highlight tonight, again, I'm deviating from my Classic Christmas Favorites. Within the past few years, I have come to love Borrowed Hearts and Twas The Night Before Christmas.Borrowed Hearts is a holiday romance about faith, trust, romance and love. My roommate and I watched it last night by the light of our Christmas tree with Lexie curled up beside us on the couch.As a child, I loved Twas The Night Before Christmas -- the cartoon and I've found that as an adult, I love it as much if not more. I know all of the songs (of the 22minute VHS) by heart and it really nourishes my child-like faith as I wrap presents, decorate my tree, re-read the Christmas story and prepare for Christmas with family."Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"For more Christmas movies and music, visit here.
