My Original Thoughts About Christmas Music
I have always been a big fan of Christmas music. Growing up we had a collection of vinyl albums. Nowadays, there are CDs I pull out every year along with the decorations.
Different Types Of Christmas Music
When I was young, I pretty much put holiday tunes into two categories. They were...
#1 Fun Kids Songs like "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer"
#2 More Serious Songs like "O Holy Night"
As I got older, I figured out there were some "cool" Christmas songs too. More and more Rock bands are recording holiday songs and albums each and every year.
