In honor of my departure for Paris this evening, I think a French song is a good addition to my holiday playlist. I have no idea what Mireille Mathieu is singing but it is a lovely melody. I remember Mireille from the 1960s when she was sometimes a guest on the Andy Williams Show. She was a big star in France and he introduced her to the US.
I am a bit short in holiday spirit this year. Glum about the United States, the world, the environment . . . I could go on. So, to help my mood I am going to post some of my favorite Christmas and Holiday songs. They won’t be in any special order, just ones I have played and replayed over the years. Some of them might be religious, even though I’m not. But the spirit of giving, celebrating, sharing, and caring (that is Christmas to me) is in all of us, regardless of our faith or lack thereof.
