ADVENT CALENDAR: IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR REDUX

Every Christmas Mom would break out the Andy Williams
Christmas Album to play on the stereo. There was also a Nat
King Cole album and a Mitch Miller “Sing Along With Mitch”
Christmas edition. But for me, even rock and roll dinosaur
that I am, it’s the Andy Williams album that “feels” like
Christmas to me.


As I’ve gotten older and my musical tastes expanded, I find
myself listening to New Age and Celtic Christmas music. And
Josh Groban just put out a holiday album that we’ve played at
the bookstore since Thanksgiving and it’s easy on the ears.

As for caroling, well, there are some things that one should
never do in public and in my case, singing is one of them!

I agree! There is something about hearing Andy Williams' "Most Wonderful Time of the Year" that just takes me instantly back to my childhood. Sometimes I like to listen to his music, close my eyes, and remember.

"Andy Williams" was one of my favorites.
