It’s a Carpenter Christmas.

No Scrooges here – of course I have Christmas music on repeat this week!

Thanks to an early gift from dad, the most recent addition to my vinyl collection is a Christmas album.  And not just any Christmas album, but the Carpenters Christmas Portrait album, circa 1978.  After catching only a few of these classics on the radio every year, I couldn’t wait to enjoy the nostalgic songs while wrapping and baking for the holidays.

All Christmas music is great, but there is something about Karen’s voice and Richard’s compositions that help make the holidays feel magical.  It is the most wonderful time of year!

So, this week, I not only bring you a song, I bring you an entire album.  Because one cannot stand without the other – and a YouTube user has graciously uploaded the entire album for easy listening!

It is also available on iTunes and if you want to permanently add it to your collection.

Happy Holidays everyone.
