“We will go with our young and our old, with our sons and our daughters, and with our flocks and herds, because we are to celebrate a festival to the LORD.” ~ Exodus 10:9
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It’s truly American. No presents are required. Expectations are only that there are food and family and fellowship, and plenty of it. But there is problem: no Thanksgiving music. So, we begin listening to Christmas music on November 1st.
These are a few of my favorites: NSyncs “Home For Christmas,” Dean Martin’s Christmas, Travis Cottrell’s “Ring the Bells”, BabbieMason’s “Comfort & Joy,” and Touched by an Angel’s “The Christmas Album”. There are several CDs that have had to be replaced because of overplay.
I usually pick up a new CD throughout the year to open and listen to first. At Children’s Pastor’s Conference in January, I picked up Go Fish’s “Snow” featuring the 8-million-view YouTube Phenomenon, “Christmas with a Capital ‘C’.” Check it out on YouTube and let me know what you think.
