The most surprising "Christian" Christmas CD - Sufjan Stevens "Songs for Christmas"
It's actually a 4 EP set of traditional and new carols in a predominantly folk setting since Sufjan Stevens is primarily a folk / indie singer-songwriter. What I didn't realize was how plainly Christian this CD was going to be; it's just wonderful.
Finally brought out the ol' Clancy Brothers Christmas album (Boulabas, the opening track). Between this and the Irish Rovers "Irish Christmas" record, my wife will be pulling her hair out. Being a mall worker, she's not a fan of Christmas music and she really doesn't like much traditional Irish music.
Needless to say, these get alot of play when she's at work and not at home
