What’s the holidays without music? This year, our readers share their favorite Christmas albums to help you get into the holiday spirit. Check ’em out!
Today’s entry is so beloved it was nominated by not one but two different people! Ron Carter and Kim Chaison both profess their love for the Jackson 5’s Christmas:
Ron: “Six of my favorite Christmas songs come from that album.”
Kim: “To me, that was the definitive version of ‘I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.’ Aside from how fun the whole album is, it has a special place in my heart because my grandma had the vinyl album, and she only brought it out for Christmas. We’d bake Christmas cookies listening to it – and to this day, whenever I listen to it (as a slick iTunes purchase!) I still wait for certain songs to skip like they did on the record. Overall, though, the kids sounded like they were having fun – for once!”
