2009 Holiday Mix

In our home we love to have music playing!
Along with beautiful color and decor,
music can add another layer of interest and enjoyment to a home.

Here's some of what we are playing this season,
Our 2009 Holiday Mix.

It's become a tradition to put together a CD
as a gift to our neighbors and friends.
I thought I'd share it with you...
My current favorite is Viva La Vida by Coldplay.

What music do you enjoy this time of year?



  1. Always love when people share their musical tastes - my vote goes to "Christmas Wrapping" by The Waitresses - It always puts a smile on my face - Thanks very much and Happy Holidays to all - the music is playing in my kitchen right now! Happy Holidays!

  2. Thats a cool idea i remember my best friend back in college, record a selection of her favorite love song and used it as one of her gives away at her wedding.
    It's funny thought you ask for, what is our favorite X-mas song well, right now my girls are in the shower belting out Jingle bells;).

    Can wait where the stunning pendant light will be hung...


  3. Hi Janel1! We listen to a great mixture this time of year, and yes, we too put together a CD for friends, usually Christmas favorites old and new. It's so easy and I think so thoughtful to share your favorite music. I'll be listening to yours !


  4. I have a three disc set from Martha Stewart that I love (traditional, classical and jazz) - she always does things right!

  5. Thanks for sharing! At this point, it's all holiday music all the time. But, for hostessing, I love what I call my "martini music." Big band, jazz- just great all around music.

    Sidenote: I LOVE the candle featured here!

  6. Hmm...I love the mix of holiday music with other stuff! A lot of this I'm not familiar with so I'm going to have to give it a listen (I use to be such a music freak but somehow I've managed to completely fall out of the music scene the last few years...).

  7. I am loving your playlist! That ColdPlay song is a favorite of mine as well (sadly, I never knew the name of the song!). We have been listening to Christmas music since Thanksgiving! We have a few favs. lets see...Nicholas (my 3yr old) likes the Jingle Bell song that starts off J.I.N.G.L.E. Bells! he walks aroung singing that part ALL. DAY. LONG!!! Of course it's more like J. I. N. G. and G. Dells!

    My T.J (5) likes the Alvin and the chipmunk Christmas song. And Brendan and myself...well we dance to them all!

    I'm late commenting because I did some last minute shopping and then we went to Stone Mountain Park for their Christmas festivities! So fun and soooo COLD!!

    Sorry so long... Have a great night Janell!

  8. Thank you so much for such a great playlist! It has been on constant rotation since the day you posted it. Especially loving the song "Home" and the Noah and the Whales song.


Now I Would Love To Hear What You Think!
