A Christmas Carol

When I was little my parents used to bundle us up into the car to drive into DC to see the fancy Christmas displays in the department stores downtown. On the way back home we’d look for Christmas lights while listening to Christmas music on the radio. Simple pleasures but with gas as cheap as it is now it can still be a pleasure that you and your family can enjoy.

Don’t really have much in the line of Christmas music? Well have I got good news for you. I was able to download enough free Christmas music to make two cds. I’m not just talking no name musicians. You can get music from one of today’s hottest country artists, Trisha Yearwood, Brad Paisley, and Faith Hill. You can also get classic artists like the Beach Boys, Bing Cosby, and Aretha Franklin singing your favorite carols.

About a week ago I had to watch the school’s choir teacher’s class while she took the Senior Choir to sing at a local assisted living home. She left the movie The Sound of Music. I didn’t get to watch the whole movie but I could still sing every single song from memory. That’s why I was thrilled to see that I could get My Favorite Things sung my Trisha Yearwood from Sears.

Amazon is offering 25 Days of Free. There is a new holiday song each day but most of them are still available for free download. I was able to get songs from Sixpence None the Richer, Jars of Clay, and Barenaked Ladies. While there check out the Amazon Holiday Sampler. This sampler has five free Christmas downloads.

Mr. Thrifty and I are going to grab our coats and check out the neighborhood lights tonight. So good night and may all your days be merry and bright.
