Tis the season of merry making, yet given all the news of late my holiday is not feeling so happy. I need major cheering up to get into the spirit, so I’m turning to Christmas music.
This morning I’ve got Cee-Lo Green’s new Christmas album “Magic Moment” blaring from the other room, and I have to admit it’s helping a bit. You can always count on Cee-Lo to bring the fun, and I can’t help but smile when I hear him sing “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch.”
I’ve reached out to a few friends, many of whom you may recognize as kickass parent bloggers, to get their recommendations for great holiday music. Check out our list of 11 Christmas albums you may want to pick up or download to improve your level of Christmas cheer, because everyone who has ever watched Elf knows that we have to have plenty of Christmas cheer in order for Santa’s sleigh to fly.
