It’s inescapable. Turn on the radio, and the air will suddenly be filled with the sounds of Burl Ives recalling that famous red-nosed reindeer. Hit the shopping mall, and you’re instantly treated to Bing Crosby wishing it would snow. Even the car wash isn’t immune to Adam Sandler’s “Hannukah Song.” One day after Thanksgiving, and the world instantly converts to Holiday Central. And while we love the classic Christmas carols just as much as the next bunch of elves, who doesn’t love a fresh set of holiday songs? A Laurie Berkner Christmas to the rescue! Packed with 15 seasonal favorites, including three new tracks, this stocking stuffer CD offers plenty of new reasons to sing along as you get ready for the holidays. Berkner puts a refreshing spin on traditional favorites, from “Jingle Bells” to “Frosty the Snowman,” as she lends her unmistakable voice to a spirited selection. New tunes like “Candy Cane Jane” and “Christmas Lights” hold their own, destined to become mainstays on your holiday play list. So, whether you’re trimming the tree or heading out to shop, this CD will be your family’s holiday soundtrack.
In a Nutshell: Holiday music from a favorite kid rocker that’s parent-friendly too is a gift in and of itself.
