I don't care who you are everyone knows at least one Holiday song! I myself adore Holiday music and most of the time a certain song can bring up so many memories!  I remember my nanny baking cookies and humming "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas" I also remember the alternative Rudolf song the silly one that has something about Light-bulbs, Pinocchio and Santa's underpants, every time we sung it my nanny would holler at us to quit our dumb talking, lol!  I remember singing jingle bells to my baby sister when we were younger and whenever I said "Jingle Bells"  I would shake her rattle for her.
I remember building snowmen with my brother and singing Frosty. 
The list could go on and on.

Now as much as I loved my nanny's humming, I also adore hearing them sung in a professional voices.  
When I found out Legacy was releasing a Classic Christmas Series, I knew I had to check it out.

I was blown away by the amount of talent in their Christmas Series!  Beloved singers through the years some older some more recently, but all amazingly talented!

My review:
As I said before a whole lot of talent is in this Classic Christmas series collection. I wont fib it was pretty awesome to hear my favorite holiday songs sung by such amazing artist.  I was reading a press released and some of the titles are even rare!
I was looking at the titles above and I think they cover almost every classic Christmas song.  I couldn't find Frosty, but that is the only one I could think of that was missing.

So no matter what your favorite Holiday song is you are sure to find it on one of these Classic CD's. 

Even though Christmas is still a few weeks away I have been listening to these nonstop.
