Advent Calendar Memories–Christmas Music

What songs did your family listen to during Christmas? Did you ever go caroling? Did you have a favorite song?

Mahalia Jackson…she is my most vivid memory of Christmas music in our house.  I don’t know where my parents got the album but it was played every Christmas.  One of those old LP albums, that my son calls “those big CDs”!  For me it’s just not Christmas without Mahalia!  My sister kept that album and transferred it on to her computer.  She made me a CD of it and now every year in my house we play that album.  My favorite song is Sweet Little Jesus Boy.  Nobody can sing it like Mahalia!
