I have had this CD/Album since it first came out. I have worn it out playing it over and over. Warm memories of my childhood fill me up...ice skating over the Christmas Holidays at the local pond, popping jiffy pop over an open fire and drinking hot chocolate. That ache in my tummy waiting for Christmas Eve. All this and much, much more...all on one CD. You can't go wrong with Nat King Cole!

My mother had the eight track of Coles' The Christmas song, and I remember listning to it during the holiday season while growing up. She finally broke down and got a CD player and asked me if I could find it on cd... well low and behold here it was, and at a good price. I brought two. One for her and one for me and family. Some things are just synonomus with the Christmas Holidays, and it just wouldn't be Christmas until Cole sing the Christmas Song. It reminds you of warm memories of Christmas!
