I love the CD "A Rock and Roll Christmas". Since I was a child my dad would always play that CD during the holidays. I love "Christmas Wrapping" by The Waitresses.

I love all non-traditional holiday music. It is always nice to mix it up a little. Always fun to hear the classics done by newer artists.

I love "My Christmas Prayer" CD by BeBe & CeCe Winans. They do an excellent version of "My Sweet Lord" on this CD. It gives me chills, it's so beautiful. This entire CD is great and has a mixture of artists on it like Rob Thomas as well.

I was born in Venezuela, and though gaitas will always have their place in my heart, I have to admit I have fallen in love with the voice of Ella Firtzgerald in her Christmas CD!

Hi, My favorite holiday music of all time is a typical latin american song called "mi burrito sabanero" every region often personalizes it by adding local elements. :)

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 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.

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!
