Top Three Christmas Albums

Yep. This is the best the world has to offer at Christmastime. Don't even try to disagree.
  1. Bing Crosby, White Christmas
    I'd like to meet someone who doesn't walk with a little pep in their step while they listen to Mele Kalikimaka . . .

  2. Vince Guaraldi, A Charlie Brown Christmas
    It's wonderful in the foreground, but it's also nice as background music for a Christmas party. It also exactly captures that melancholy feeling I sometimes get during the holidays. You know, the one where you sort of wish you could be a kid again. No? Just me???

  3. Nat King Cole, The Christmas Album
    I am of the opinion that Nat King Cole had the best voice on the planet, and no one has had as good a voice since. It's so smooth and relaxing. To think, his parents thought he was making a mistake by singing professionally. (I'm glad they lost that argument!)

Thing I'm thankful for: Christmas music, of course!

I raised such a beautiful and smart woman--with a great taste in music. The first and the third albums are the best as you said but you missed it on number two. That, of course, would be "Merry Christmas from the Beach Boys". Two others: "Billboard 1955 to present Greatest Christmas Hits" and "Merry Christmas, Johnny Mathis". There you have it! Dad
