I Love Christmas Carols

        I have been listening to Christmas carols and reminiscing on all the wonderful times I had listening to a wide variety of carols  with my twin - reggae, calypso, traditional, you name it. We especially enjoyed hearing them when we were busy decorating, baking Christmas puddings and preparing special Christmas meals.  I  smile as I recall that one year we heard Christmas carols on our birthday, November 4 . We had a good laugh. The radio station really started playing Christmas carols early that year.
       In recent years I have  listened to carols on the radio stations but this time I decided to also listen to some CDs that I got but had not yet listened to.  
       The one above features top singers on two CDs singing 42 carols! I wanted to list some of my favourites but so many of them sound great.  I therefore decided to mention a few of the ones that I was hearing for the first time and like a lot -  'The Holly And The Ivy' - Annie Lennox, 'The Little Road To Bethlehem' - Hayley Westenra and 'Christmas In The Country' - Sara Storer with Shane Howard.
       Many of my favourite traditional carols were also on the CDs - 'Joy To The World,' 'Hark, The Herald Angels Sing,' 'The First Noel,''Little Drummer Boy,' 'I Wish You A Merry Christmas,' 'Oh Holy Night' 'Silent Night 'and 'Jingle Bells.'

Have you been listening to Christmas carols?  What are some of your favourite old and new carols?
