My Five Favourite Christmas Songs - Christmas Playlist

Britmums and Coca-Cola have challenged us  
 to do a

And I am joining in because I like the thought of drivers drinking Coke instead of alcohol when they are driving! The fact that there is an ipad mini up for grabs has absolutely NOTHING to do with it *coughs*

So this is my #FestivePlaylist

Mine would be:

Driving Home for Christmas - Chris Rea.  
I hummed it all the way through #Healing4Kerry and there hasn't been a day since that the chords haven't struck a chord with me
Favourite line: "soon there'll be a freeway, get my feet on holy ground" - yes you will Kerry my darling, yes you will. xxxxx

Merry Christmas Everyone - Shakin' Stevens.  This transforms me straight back to my youth when he was still famous, and I had his cassettes.  Yes, it reveals my age doesn't it ;-)
Favourite line: "People dancing all night long" - no secret that I like a BOOGIE!

I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas - Bing Crosby
It has to be said, I love a bit of snow, and we had a dusting of it last week.  I'd personally love a white Christmas.  We'll be spending ours in Folkestone, where snow would look truly wonderful. Aaron would get so much joy out of playing with it.
Favourite line: "May your days be merry and bright"

Let it Snow Let it Snow Let it Snow - Dean Martin
Again, a bit of snow obsession here :-)

Favourite line: "If you really hold me tight, all the way home I'll be warm!"
"Oh the weather outside is frightful [it is] but the fire is so delightful!"
paints a lovely picture doesn't it! 
I have to end with a legend.  This song lifts you, and is timeless I think!
The Christmas Song, Merry Christmas to You - Nat King Cole
Favourite line: "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping on your nose!"
"tiny tots with their eyes all aglow will find it hard to sleep tonight!"
Post publish edit. I just HAD to come back and add on a number SIX:

Oh Holy Night - Celine Dion.
Had to insert something to bring us back to the true meaning of Christmas...
Favourite line: "Oh holy night, the stars are brightly shining, it is the night of our deep saviour's birth"

So what are yours? 
In fact don't tell me! 
I want an ipad mini all to myself!
So you get busy doing something else!
Leave this linky for me, all me, just me, and me and me ;-)

Go! Go! Go! Play with some snow!
And if this Linky don't bring me an ipad mini, I want one from Santa! 
Santa ya hear me!!!!!?????

P.S. If this post don't make you feel Christmassy then nothing will ;-)

Oh and by the way, we finally put up our tree, lights and decorations yesterday.  Aaron loved helping.

This is our tree and sitting room window:

Bye again

  1. You got me right in the mood with your choices and so lovely for someone to mention the way that Christmas got started in the first place. Love your decorations. Commenting for myself and on behalf of BritMums.


Drop me a line, and I will visit you right back - as soon as I get chance. Thanks for your comment.
