8 Essential Classic Christmas Albums

 


It's that time of the year where we bring in the Christmas cheer and play our holiday music. For some of us its on a radio or on our phones, but for others it may be playing old fashioned vintage vinyls on a record player. I find myself lucky that both my husband and I grew up with listening to music on a record player. Both sets of our parents listened to their records often and I remember listening to them while lying down on a pillow in the living room. Listening to vinyl records now brings back good and sweet memories. It also brings me that glimmer of Christmases past.

I happen to own a few classic Christmas albums from Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, and Doris Day to name a few, and they are such a treat to listen to. Even my children have a good time putting on the record and listening with me.

There are loads of holiday albums out there to choose from both vintage and modern. I wanted to share with you eight essential classic Christmas albums that I think are worth giving a listen to.  I mean who doesn't want to hear Elvis singing "I'll be home for Christmas" or The Beach Boys sing "Little Saint Nick". These albums truly bring in the beauty of Christmas cheer. Try them out and give them a listen during this holiday season.

  1. Nice choices! The Phil Spector is one we listen to a lot in our house, and we got the Beach Boys one this year. Our fave vintage Christmas album has to be the Herb Alpert one. It makes everyone smile.

  2. I am obsessed with Christmas music, so I love this post! You've also included some of my all-time favs here. The Phil Spector was one of the first ones I remember listening to, and it has some of the best Christmas songs, period. I also grew up with the Beach Boy one as well, and since my mom is obsessed with the Carpenters, we had that one too, which when I found on vinyl at Goodwill one day I HAD to have.
