    It's the Muppets and John Denver - My Favorite Christmas Album

    This has been my favorite Christmas album, and great all year round, since I was a child. Love the muppets, love John Denver - there are fun songs, and there are sweet songs of peace and joy. It still makes me laugh and cry. Great for all ages.
