What’s Your Favorite Christmas Album? I’ve Got Mine..
Gee - let's count all the Christmas albums that have been released since the beginning of time. Wow. That could boggle one's mind. But the big question is - what is your GO TO Christmas album? Here are a couple of choices, and then I'll give you mine, for what it's worth.
Do you like comedy? Well if that's your cup of tea, I've got the hands down answer. Have you ever heard of Bob Rivers? He was (and still might be) a radio personality and song parodist.

He made a tremendous comeback with his first release in a very long time. It debuted at number one on the Billboard charts. It's James Taylor's "Before This World".
One of the greatest, most soothing voices ever and most accomplished musician ever to pick up a guitar
But that's not his Christmas album. This is:
Pick this up (or download or whatever). You'll love it for sure. Now what's YOUR's?
