As it turns out, that year marked the first of one of the best Play Music endeavors to date- our Customized Holiday CDs. They feature the voices of (your) little kiddos singing their favorite holiday songs, and it is the cutest. For reals. It wins best gift by a long shot.
Music is what helps us all feel our feelings- for better or worse. And it's the holiday music we hear that gives this season a special place in our lives. Like- "Silver Bells." That song still gives me the cozy josies. And "Oh Holy Night." They hold memories I hope to never forget.
Capturing the sound of their young singing voice on these songs is unlike any other snapshot. Especially the out takes. It is an honor to have made 176(!!) customized holiday recordings over the past three years. I brag about the kids and I spin their tunes in my personal holiday record collection- which I believe is tops.
If you haven't received a 'Custom Holiday CD' from a Play Music family yet, ask around cause they're out there. And if you'd like to participate in next years round, be sure and subscribe to Play Music so that you get the advance reminder (because recording sessions begin OCTOBER!).
Until next time, enjoy the behind the scenes video preview.
And have yourself some slow and cozy holidays.
