This time of year, I can come out of the closet with my love of Christmas music. I can openly admit that I own every Mormon Tabernacle Choir Broadcast on DVD I have been able to find. The Playlist on my MP3 player changes over to Christmas tunes. I am a sucker for a good Christmas CD. I also love a good Christmas special. Whose heart doesn't beat a little faster to the extradornary kicks and heels clicking of the Rockettes? How I miss the days of Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Andy Williams. Thank goodness for YouTube, so I can share some of those magical moments of childhood with my own children.
Here is my all-time favorite memory from Bing Crosby:
So to all of you I say Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and enjoy the songs of the season.
(If you don't want to buy all the DVDs of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas concerts, you can watch the abbreviated version of many of them as shown during Music and the Spoken Word by clicking here via the Mormon Tabernacle Choir YouTube Channel.)
