This album is one of the ''True Classic'' Christmas albums to be treasured each holiday season. The medley of ''Let it snow/Count Your Blessings/We Wish You a Merry Christmas''' is worth the price of the cd alone. What the reviewer above doesn't understand is that a Christmas album is not supposed to be hip. Ray Conniff did produce many bland easy listening lp's in the 60's but he also gave us this gem of a Christmas LP. The whole concept of the album was to re-create the excitement young adults (with young children) feel at Christmas in the danceable rythms of the period (waltz,mambo,etc.). When it was released it was a great Christmas party album. Today, it is a nostalgic reminder of the parents of us baby-boomers who loved to dance, drink Manhattens and celebrate the season with joy and anticipation. If you don't believe me, put this on the car stereo and take your kids around the neighborhood to look at the Christmas Lights. You won't find a better soundtrack. One of my top 10
