I know not everyone celebrates Christmas, but I am going to be getting my Christmas cd's out. If you are not celebrating Christmas is there some other holiday music you like to listen to? Do you have any links to it? Would you care to share any of your traditions here, or make your own post? I am beginning to feel festive.

I always know what to get my son in law, either Mannheim Steamroller or TransSiberian Orchestra.

@GardenGerty Trans-Siberian Orchestra... I've only heard Wizards in Winter by them from a YouTube video a long time ago. Not really my type of music, but I can tell that they're pretty creative.

@GardenGerty Both are pretty amazing. @foxontherails check out their carol of the bells. I believe that one is most people's favorite

It does not have to be the Christmas season for me to play Christmas songs. I have played Plácido Domingo's Christmas album in June some years.

@Hatley The operatic voice is well suited to Christmas Carols.

Yes, I love Christmas music. I don't have any links though, but some of my favorites are oh come all ye faithful, silent night, White Christmas etc.

We actually learned those in elementary school, before it became politically incorrect a million years ago.

Once when we were caroling in a church group one of the people our group called on requested O Holy Night, but we had a guy who could do it well.

Is "Salty Dog" considered seasonal music or is that too spicy?

I have, I think, about 70 Christmas songs on my iPod. I don't own many Christmas albums...and the ones I do own are decades old (e.g., A Holly Jolly Christmas by Burl Ives or Twelve Songs of Christmas by Jim Reeves). I play them on occasion (such as the office Christmas party). Usually the only Christmas songs I play repeatedly are "Step Into Christmas" by Elton John or comical songs (like "Here Comes Fatty Claus").

Although I have a huge collection of music the only time I play it is during Christmas time.

I've been listening to music on Amazon Prime. It's nice because I can just make playlists on the cloud and listen to it on my computer or phone.

I like to listen to holiday music in the kitchen when I'm cooking or cleaning up, but in the cars I prefer our regular rock music, no Christmas there.

We have been listening to Christmas music ever since my brother put up the Christmas tree. We've also been watching Christmas movies.

For quite some years we played in a brass band and over Christmas we would play carols until we really were fed up with hearing them. So I'm afraid we don't play Christmas music.

I sure do! Love listening to seasonal music. Recently I've been enjoying the Christmas Jazz station on Pandora. Also enjoying the Holly channel on Sirius/XM lately.

I love the upbeat Christmas music like, "Let it Snow" and fun toe tapping ones. I have CD's but they are in storage so been trying to find channels on my Sirius XM.

I do play festive music but wait for another couple of weeks. Festive music does make me feel happy.
