Holidays are a-Comin’ (Oh yeah!)

Do you hear that? It’s the sound of the holidays!

Now that Halloween is over, it is officially the holiday season (according to greeting card companies). Just take a trip to any store and you’ll know what I am talking about. Move over, pumpkins and spooky ghosts! Time for menorahs, Christmas trees, and presents. Snowy winter scenes will surely adorn every shelf and endcap.

Yes, the holiday season is already upon us. Even though it is a magical time of year, it can also be incredibly stressful. All of the shopping, wrapping, shipping, and decorating can be enough to wear most of us down! However, when I think back on my fondest holiday memories as a child, one thing sticks with me (and it’s not the presents or food). It’s the music.

There is a whole industry built around holiday music. Everyone from N*Sync, to Mariah Carey, to Alvin and the Chipmunks have released holiday albums. While some of these albums tend to be a bit too poppy for my taste, there are many classic holiday albums that are musically rich.

These artists deliver exciting classical holiday music:

  • Mannheim Steamroller
  • Tran-Siberian Orchestra
  • The Sal-Soul Orchestra

These artists provide classic holiday vocals:

  • Harry Connick, Jr.
  • Frank Sinatra
  • BIllie Holiday
  • Josh Groban
  • The Jackson 5

Check of some of these artist’s songs this holiday season and enjoy dancing to them at home or singing along with them when you are driving in the car.  You are sure to make memories with your children that will last for a lifetime!
