Holiday Blog Hopping

Hi, everyone! Welcome to the Holiday Blog Hop, and your chance to win prizes like free books and gifts cards…and a grand prize of a KINDLE FIRE!

Each day I’ll be holding a random drawing to give away a copy of my ebook novella, Adrienne’s Ghost. At the end of the “hop,” I’ll be drawing to send a $25 Amazon gift card!

How to enter, you ask? 🙂 Simple…everyone who posts a comment on my blog each day will be entered. Winners will be randomly drawn–one book per day, the $25 Amazon certificate at the end (drawn from all the winners). My winners will be automatically entered to win the grand prize (the Kindle Fire).

So let’s get going!

Since this is a “holiday” blog hop, I thought it would be fun to talk about our favorite holidays things. I also love music, all kinds, and sing in my church choir when my life isn’t too insane. (Believe me, it’s for my enjoyment…not the choir’s!) 🙂

So for the next day or two, I’d like to hear about your favorite holiday music, from seasonal children’s classics (Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer), to music that makes you laugh (thinking Adam Sandler anyone?), or the traditional sacred songs.

Personally, I like them all, but my favorite of favorites would be sacred Christmas music. Put on a CD of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing O Come All Ye Faithful, and I’m back to my childhood, listening to my mother’s albums on the record player. (Yes, I am that old.) 🙂  Or the more recent Mary Did You Know? That one makes me cry. (Check out this home-made but powerful a cappalla version by Jordin Sparks.)

I’d love to hear from you. What’s your favorite holiday music?

  1. I’m enamored with the Trans SIberian Orchestra, (saw them in concert last year, my second time), but I truly well up when I hear the old standards like The Christmas Song by Nat K Cole and Holly Jolly Christmas by Burl Ives. AH, let’s face it, I well up over them all! Have a wonderful Holiday and see you on the net PS: I tweeted your site, it’s a great one! Susan Ricci

  3. Thanks so much, Susan! I love the TransSiberian Orchestra too! In fact, my kids got me the DVD of one of the big hits (which of course I can’t recall at the moment). I love Nat King Cole and Burl Ives too. And now all I can hear in my head is Silver and Gold, Silver and Gold…I might start singing along while I’m sitting here at my day job! 🙂 Thank you for your kind comments.
    And thanks for stopping by!

  4. The Little Drummer Boy duet by Bing and David Bowie is my favorite 🙂

  5. I love that one too, Sharon! Their voices are so different (the ranges, I guess) but blend perfectly. The generational and style differences made it interesting too!

  6. I love christmas music! My favorite song is white christmas. Its so pretty! Happy holidays!
