It’s interesting how some things happen. Why just a week or so ago, the Jersey Family Fun writers and I were sitting at our computers tapping away on Facebook about how this year we wanted to review some holiday albums for you. We wanted to find out what cool kid artists had albums that your families would enjoy. Laurie Berkner’s name rose to the top of the list. We were going to find out if she had one.
Then, the next day on her Facebook page, Laurie Berkner announced the presale of her A Laurie Berkner Christmas album. Now, how cool is that? Even better, because Laurie has been so great to work with over the years, we were able to get a few copies to give away to our readers. Yes, you can win the CD before it even ships out to stores. And yeah, I admit when the CD came, I put it on, after the kids went to bed, and sang along.
I love how Laurie Berkner put her twist on these classic Christmas songs and created some new ones that are sure to be favorites.
- Jingle Bells
- Santa’s Coming To My House Tonight – captures how kids are so excited the night before Christmas that they can’t sleep.
- Little Drummer Boy
- I Saw Three Ships
- Candy Cane Jane
- Do You Hear What I Hear?
- Children Go Where I Send Thee
- Silent Night
- Christmas Lights – A fun song about Christmas lights.
- Christmas is Coming
- Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer
- Jolly Old St. Nicholas
- Frosty the Snowman
- White Christmas
- We Wish You a Merry Christmas
As you open the album cover, Laurie has added a very special touch to it. Under every song Laurie shares why she chose that song and why it’s special to her family.
Laurie Berkner says, “I have actually wanted to make this album for a long time, as so many of my memories of being a kid at Christmastime center around music!”
I am so glad she did. I know it will be one of our favorites and one of yours.
