Ah Christmas..........Magical and spiritually precious but for some of us a sad time so listening to other cultures traditional carols adds a welcome relief to the familiar "I'll be Home for Christmas" tunes. Helps open the heart and mind to other possibilites and brings that magical gift of Christmas right to where it's needed.

I, too, love Jazz Christmas music. I have a great jazz version of The Little Drummer Boy, that's amazing.

I thoroughly enjoy the album, "If on a Winter's Night" by Sting; as well as many of the French Carols, ie "Il Est Ne, Le Divin Enfant."

There are so many sounds of Christmas, traditional and non-traditional, but my favorite is the sound of the fire in the fireplace while my family and I enjoy each others company while listening to old German Christmas recordings on our old record player. I myself do not speak or understand a word in German, but my Oma sings along in her flawless German and it's beautiful to listen to - tugs at the heartstrings a little, especially when I can see that she's so content with the fact that she still has a little bit of her old country.

I love sitting in my mom's home in Estes Park, Colorado and hearing the wind whistle through the pine trees outside the window while I am snuggled up safe and warm in front of the fire. The sound of wind in the trees reminds me of the White Christmases we have enjoyed there.

This is the one time of the year when we all go out of our way to show grace to one another. My favorite non-traditional sounds of Christmas - the songs from non-western cultures.

I really like Brian Setzer's Boogie Woogie Christmas CD. It's swingin', man!

Celtic Christmas music. I discovered it back in the 90's and ever since, Christmas music should be played on Celtic instruments for me to get the holiday spirit.

Holiday Song: The Sign Of Love - Christmas is the sign of love. This is where good drives out the scrooges, grinches, and other sour people who want to mess up Christmas. Gene's "Uher-nog" helps too. I do believe Christmas being a holiday with Santa Claus, Grinches, Animals, Religious beliefs and family and friends means so many good things to all of us ! What we need to do is go into this time of the year feeling good about our life and living and the life and living of everyone around our planet. If we can go into the holiday season in this open, peaceful way we will now and in the future create a much more peaceful and wonderful world to live in. Out of that great show StarTrek we can all live long and prosper from our open hearts, minds and peace. My wishes to you no matter what your religious belief is for you to live a peaceful life today and in your future !

We have some great CDs from Hawaiian slack key guitarists - what a relaxing sound it is! International music is always welcome at our house.

My husband is a video game designer and also loves writing music for games, and last year he found a cd called 8 Bit Christmas by Rush Coil; it's Christmas music played in all the tones of classic Nintendo or other classic games of our youth like Zelda, Metroid, Mario Bros. etc. I think my husband listened to it at least 20 times throughout December and January he loved it so much. It sure brought back memories to start playing it again this year. Happy Holidays!

My class of 3-6 year olds has been listening to Eillen Ivers and her violin, playing Irish Christmas Songs. Between that and a Charlie Brown Christmas, we are getting into the holiday spirit!

Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I do not know of any Christmas Carol that I do not like. O tannebaum is a favorite along with Blue Christmas. Christmas is a universal time throughout the world. It brings everyone together, and the music helps.
