Christmas Spirit


A very long time ago, my mother gave the speech that Santa Claus lived in all our hearts, and it is the joy, love, and giving that keeps his spirit alive. I might have scoffed a bit at the time, but now have to think it is true. I think it is fairly evident that there is plenty of Christmas Spirit in Rosemary Clooney when she sings Let It Snow.

And there is such joy and beauty when The Carpenters sing a Christmas Medley, it is hard to think otherwise. After all, the gorgeous sound made by Karen Carpenter whenever she sang had to have some affect on your spirit and mood.

If having Bing Crosby sing White Christmas wasn't special enough, when he is joined by Frank Sinatra to sing it could make it something that certainly shifts your spirits into an accelerated Christmas spirit, right?

And if Maggie, Terre and Suzzy Roche can't bring you to a new level in your Christmas spirit, I would have to think you need a check up from your doctor immediately. The sisters are a big part of my holiday soundtrack, so check out their Christmas Medley.

Merry Christmas Eve!


  1. There are only two Christmas albums I listen to regularly each Xmas: Vince's A Charlie Brown Christmas and the Carpenters' Christmas. (Bab's Christmas are much much MUCH to manic depressive for me.)

    And then I supplement that with watching White Christmas and Auntie Mame.

    Merry Christmas!! :)

  2. Writer, Merry Christmas, and a happy New Year to you as well!
