I hope you all had a good week! I'm glad it's Friday. We hope to go see some of the holiday windows this weekend. If there are any in NYC you'd especially like to see, please leave a comment, and we'll do our best. If not this weekend, there's always the next one.
I don't usually listen to much Christmas music other than the songs that play on the radio or in television specials. I think it was all of those Holiday Band concerts I was in growing up that have me maxed out ;). I like A Winter's Solstice IV, by Windham Hill (Amazon), which is soothing and more oriented towards the season.
Nichole mentioned The Hotel Cafe Presents ... Winter Songs (Amazon : iTunes) and it's great with some new holiday songs from several favorite women artists and new ones, too. Here are a few favorites -
- Winter Song, Sara Bareilles & Ingrid Michaelson
- The Heartache Can Wait, Brandi Carlisle
- Maybe Next Year Xmas Song by Meiko
- Silent Night, Priscilla Ahn
- Winter Wonderland, Kate Havnevik
PS I made the Santa Lucia Clothespin Dolls last year from Alicia's kit.
