Pink Saturday~A Caroling We Go!

pinksatbut It’s Pink Saturday once again! It is hosted by the dear Beverly at How Sweet the Sound Blog and is always a day of sweet pinkness.

Of course we normally feature anything pink, we have been given a bit of leeway by doing themes, if we’d like. Today’s theme is: Share your favorite holiday music.

choir 4 My favorite music is the traditional Christian music celebrating Christ’s birth. These are the ones that I grew up singing in church and bring nostalgic tears when I hear them today.”

No thank you is what I say to newer jingles like: “Hey Santa” or “Please Come Home for Christmas”. I heard a ridiculous version of  “The Twelve Days of Christmas” by the Muppets the other day. I can hardly stand it under normal circumstances! Please don’t hate me if it’s your favorite; that’s ok with me! “Everyone likes different things, it’s what makes the world go around”; that’s what my mother-in-law always says!choir 8 This group of children is singing “ Silent Night”.choir 9   This group holding hands around the Christmas Tree are singing “O Tannenbaum” and "“Hark the Herald Angels Sing”.choir cats My daughter insists the kitty trio is singing “Away in a Manger”, yes, with an accordion.

Choir “Go Tell it on the Mountain”choir2 choir3“Little Drummer Boy”

“The First Noel” choir6 “We Three Kings…”choir7

“Joy to the World, the Lord is Come…”

Oh how wonderful those vintage cards are! What a lovely collection you have.

I'm totally with you on the songs - I put a Mixpod on my blog this post (only plays if you click on it, so you don't get blasted with sound or a slowed screen) and I'm pretty sure I have some of those on it. Plus a very wintry background which matches the view outside the windows as I type (11.18 Saturday morning in the UK) where it's now snowing HARD. Happy Pink Saturday!

I am with you...I do not care for most of the newer Christmas songs....I like the old traditional songs that give meaning to Christmas.
All your olden cards are precious....especially the kitties for me.......
Hugs,
