Love the Xmas music countdown. As someone with around 100 hrs of xmas music ripped to my HD, I have many versions of the same song. So, it's a bit like choosing a wine with dinner. Hmmm, does the Bing version work here, or should we do the remix version of "Santa Claus is Coming to Town"?

If ever we do meet around the holiday season, I certainly won't be pulling out my extensive Johnny Mathis Christmas music selections.LOL.

On a "nostalgia" note. One of the enduring memories of Christmas in Moncton was the annual appearance of "The Westmoreland Singers" on CKCW. Although I found that they sounded like a choir of "Mrs. Millers", their version of "Silver Bells" lives forever in the North Pole region of my mind.

Thanks for the kind words, Ray! After sickening myself of listening to holiday music (since I start in August / Sept), I'm starting to get back into it again. Supposed to snow tonight, so hopefully it will bring on the Christmas spirit! I don't remember the Westmoreland Singers, though. LOL @ Johnny Mathis. I find he sounds so "urgent" when he sings. Don't know how to explain it.
