A Christmas music recommendation

I have been sampling online Christmas music streams and I have a couple to recommend for those of you who, like me, sit at a computer most the day.

This one is out of the Netherlands. You'll need to click on the orange link that says "Open de online RTL FM player". It plays pretty much the same music you'd hear on your average American Christmas station, but the commercials are in Dutch and therefore a lot less annoying.

This one is out of France. It plays the songs you're used to as well as music you probably wouldn't hear on your average American Christmas station - international Christmas carols in a variety of languages. Also, it will keep things interesting by throwing in random selections such as a song I just heard that was on The Muppet Christmas Carol.

And just as a side note, some interesting pictures come up when you search google images for pictures of Christmas carolers. Like this one. And this one. Oh, and this one. I chose the picture that looked like it was made on a Lite Brite.

Thank you. Our computers at work don't have speakers but I will sample your hard work when I get home. I also really like the pictures the Clinton's were my favorite.

The second picture is Brooke, Shauna and Cherie. The third is a replica of Nick and Cameron's Christmas pajamas in the early 90's. They had the red and white striped ones which turned their sheets red after one nights sleep. Oh memories.

That last picture is a winner.

I have to say - the Lite Brite looking one brought back some good, and let's be honest, not so good memories. Lite Brite - now that was a toy.

Thanks for the research on Christmas stations. We appreciate all your hard work.

Nick was the only one with pajamas that turned his bed red after sleeping in them. Those were not the striped PJ's, but some plaid flannels. Courtney had a Sunday dress that made her arms and hands green. That was probably the one church meeting where I was so distracted I could not even listen to the speakers.

I just got magically swept away to my childhood upon seeing the heading photo. Lite brite's were the best!

I love how Cameron is the only one who remembers things accurately.
