I hope everyone is enjoying the Christmas challenge. It's Wednesday and that means it's time for some new meme questions...
It seems as if every recording artist under the sun records at least one Christmas song. For some, that song can define a career such as Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" or Elmo and Patsy's "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer." There's a holiday song for everyone--from the serious music of cantadas to the comedy stylings of the Bob Rivers Christmas albums. This week, we'll take a look at the music that surrounds the festive holiday season.
1. Do you have a favorite Christmas song? If so, what is it?
2. List your top five Christmas albums/CDs. (or you can go with songs, if you want)
3. Is Christmas music played too much/not enough/just about right? Explain.
4. Were you part of any holiday themed Christmas pagents growing up? If so, please tell us about one that is particularily memorable or stands out. Parents--tell us about one that your children have been involved in or will be involved in this year.
BONUS - Is there just one song that you want to hear every year that really makes it feel like Christmas? If so, which song is it? Are there are any special instruments involved? (For example, I love to hear Carol of the Bells played by a handbell choir).
Just leave a link to your answers in the comments!
