First Christmas Shopping

Day 5

So as I mentioned the other day, I am already getting into Christmas mode. One thing I miss every year is having a good selection of Christmas songs on my iPod. Most of my Christmas music is from Disneyland, and while that stuff is great, there are a lot of classic Christmas songs that I love that I would like to have. So my thought was to grab one of those best of Christmas CDs. I had no idea it would be this hard to choose.

I’m down to two compilation CDs, Now Christmas and Now That’s What I Call Christmas. I kid you not, they are practically named the same thing. They have a lot of overlap of songs too. No matter which one I buy, I’ll get Bing Crosby singing White Christmas, Nat King Cole singing The Christmas Song, Jingle Bell Rock by Bobby Helms, and a few other overlaps.

But then it gets tricky…who’s version of The Most Wonderful Time of the Year is best? Johnny Mathis or Andy Williams? One has the version of Let It Snow from Die Hard but the other has Do They Know It’s Christmas? by Band Aid.

On the other hand they both have crap I’ll never listen to. One has Justin Bieber warbling some Christmas monstrosity, the other has N’Sync doing the same thing.

One has Thurl Ravenscroft…the other has Tony Bennett! AAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!!!

Screw it…I just ordered both.

    I’ve been slowly collecting Christmas CDs over the years. I like finding them for $5 at Target. I drive my boyfriend crazy with a seven-hour iPod mix that constantly plays in my apartment in December: Elvis, big band, Bing, Chris Isaak, the Muppets. My favorites are the Beach Boys, the Temptations, and select songs from the first two “Very Special Christmas” albums from the ’80s. It’s crazy how much I love Christmas music, given that I’m an atheist, though I do favor the secular songs.

    Crikey! I have an unopened John Denver and the Muppets CD! I must have bought it on sale after Christmas last year. I know what I’ll be kicking off the season with.

    Could’ve bought one and then dropped massively unsubtle hints to Mrs. Babb about purchasing the other…
