My Christmas gift to you

Tis the season for all things Christmas-y.  Peppermints, snowmen, holiday music, eggnog (though, really, who drinks that stuff?), stockings, the Nativity…..and, of course, gifts.

I’ll admit, I’ve been playing Christmas music in our home since before Thanksgiving, and I thought I’d share one of my favorite CDs with you.

No, really, not just share, as in, “here, go buy this,” but share as in, "leave me a comment, telling me your favorite holiday song, and you’ll be entered to win this CD in my very first blog giveaway.”

EO christmas cd

(if you click on the CD cover, it’ll take you to an Amazon.com site where you can preview the songs)

I love this artist.  I’d venture to guess that most of you haven’t even heard of her, but trust me, she’s worth a listen.  I love her voice; she is a very talented songwriter; and this album is a great compilation of classic and new holiday songs.

So, Merry Christmas!

Leave me a comment, telling my your favorite holiday song, by midnight CST Wednesday 12/9/09, and you’ll be entered.  I’ll randomly select a winner on Thursday morning. =)

My absolute favorite is "Here With Us" by Joy Williams. Makes me remember what we're really celebrating.

and classic-wise, I adore "I'll be Home for Christmas." With my brothers so far away, I sob everytime I hear it, thinking that one day, they'll both come home.

I love Drummer Boy. Oh and I love all of Kenny and Dolly's Christmas songs together. I just think they are too cute!

Jeanette said...

I love Christmas music. My fave hymn is O Holy Night, my favorite "fun" one is Muppets (Beaker "meemee meemee meemee") and my favorite album is Peter, Paul and Mary Christmas. (We listened to it growing up...)

My all-time favorite is O Holy Night.

Yay! A Giveaway! I think my favorite today is "Mary Did You Know", but it can't be the version I keep hearing this year sung by a man. However, my favorite changes daily :)

Rachel said...

Yay for Christmas music! Ahhh, how I love the holidays. I haven't heard of this cd before, so I'm off to check it out! Thanks!

Rachel said...

Hehe, how did I leave out my favorite song? It's gotta be Noel. :)

MommaHarms said...

My favorite song is "Oh Come Oh Come Imanuel." Not sure why, but I love it!

Angela said...

I love Silver Bells best of all. I know, it's not traditional, but it reminds me of what I love the most about the whole holiday.

Other than that, I love Silent Night, esp the second verse. :)

O Holy Night has been my favorite since I was a kid. But "You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch..." is currently my ringtone because Gabe loves it so much :)

Melissa said...

My favorite is: oh come all ye faithful...

Christy said...

I have been listening to Christmas music since before Thanksgiving too. The Christmas season seems to go by so fast and I think that if I play my music long enough, it just might stay longer.

Without a doubt, my favorite song is O Holy Night and The Little Drummer Boy.

Thanks for the chance to win this CD... I hope I win:)

Kirsten said...

Oh, I am obsessed with Christmas-y season music too! Love it, just as much as my christian music station!

Annabelle said...

I love the song "When Love Came Down" by Point of Grace. I love how it builds throughout. It is the first Christmas song I listen to every year.

The Clines said...

The 12 days of Christmas, as sung by the Muppets. Happy childhood memories!

The Tylers said...

I have heard of Erin O'Donnell! :) I love all Christmas music, but if I have to pick just one I guess I'll say the Canon Christmas song (hopefully you know what I am talking about)!

Beth said...

I need to get my music out, but I love "The Poem" (Merry Christmas From Heaven) by Mooney Tunco. Very special song for me.

Rachel said...

My favorite Christmas song of all is "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing." One line in that song sums up salvation: "God and sinners reconciled."

Ellie said...

My favorite is "O Holy Night"!
