My Favorite Holiday Song

 Hi everyone! Today's prompt from Holidailies is "What's your favorite holiday song?"

I had to think about it, because there are a lot of Christmas songs I love, and a lot that annoy me (like the ones that get played over and over and over again on the radio.)

Then I remembered that there was this one Christmas record album I really loved when I was a little kid. It featured songs sung by a children's choir. My favorite song on the album was "The Little Drummer Boy." But only that version of it. I have never liked another version of it as much. Every Christmas, I would beg to listen to this record, until everyone else in my family was sick of it!

I wanted to figure out what album it was. The problem was, we never actually owned the record album itself. Someone made a cassette tape of it for us. I still have the cassette but it is labeled only "The Little Drummer Boy."

Once I got started writing today's post, I suddenly got my heart set on finding the album! A quick Google search for "Little Drummer Boy" + "Record Album" + "Children's Choir" led me to "Don Janse And His 60 Voice Children's Choir."

When I checked out the sample tracks, I realized, it certainly was the same album that I remembered from my childhood! Just listening to it brings back memories of sitting by the fire in our living room, drinking eggnog, while my dad put on record after record.

I thought it would be fun to actually share the song with you, so here is the full version for your listening pleasure!

(I bought the mp3 version of the entire album, by the way, and I am going to listen to it on my way to work tomorrow!)


  1. How beautiful to hear the entire song.....thanks for sharing

  2. One of my favorites also!! My favorite songs are from a Christmas album my parents had. I had transferred it to CD but I haven't seen the CD in years. :(
