100 days to Christmas | the music we play

There's some things that follow us from childhood to adulthood to parenthood. The music we listen to seems to be one of those things (and I think the books we read are also influenced by childhood, but that's a whole other post)

This Disney album is one of those things that has followed me through my entire life. Christmas isn't complete without it. In fact, I "lost" my copy of it a couple of years ago (turns out it wasn't lost, merely shoved into a box out of the way), and pestered my mum until she hunted through my sister's in-storage boxes until she found it and sent it to me (and now I need to hunt it out and return it to my sister.)

Remember when you copied vinyl LPs on to tape? Well, this album was at the end of the Disney album above. I have been searching for it for a number of years, and just two weeks ago one of my friends found it on ebay! I snapped it up, and can't wait to play it for my kids!(just need to get it off the vinyl and onto a cd/mp3)

What album from your childhood still gets played each year?



  1. When we were young, mum bought the 'Andy Williams Christmas' LP and we had it on tape after we got married. It was one of the first Christmas CDs I bought, and it's still one of my favourites!

  2. I can totally relate to this post - I have a cassette tape with several of my favorite LPs on it; Daddy made it for me years ago. Just last night, Robbie found one of my favorites (Snoopy vs. The Red Baron) and burned a CD for me to enjoy this Christmas season! I think he was tired of hearing all that extra LP/cassette noise from my old tape. LOL


Thanks for leaving a comment!
