DAY 9: ROMANIAN CHRISTMAS CAROLS

If you’re not already bored by my Romanian themed posts lately, then you’re in luck, because I have another one for you. This time it’s all about music! Romanian Christmas Music!

If you listen to some of the songs below, you’ll see that Romanian Christmas carols are quite different to what you usually hear on the radio, but I guess that’s something specific to every country.

Anyway, if you want to listen to something different or new, here are some Romanian Christmas carols I like:

Or if you want to listen to a concert from one of the best choirs in Romania:

Which one of these did you like?  What kind of traditional Christmas music do you have in your country?

DAY 3: FIVE CHRISTMAS ALBUMS YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO

Yesterday I shared with you 20 Christmas songs you should listen to to get your Christmas spirit going. Today it’s time to share with you five Christmas albums that I love and listen to during Christmas time.

Here they are.

1. Frank Sinatra – A Jolly Christmas from Frank Sinatra

I feel like listening to Frank Sinatra it’s a must every year around Christmas time.

2. Michael Buble – Christmas

Again, just like with Frank Sinatra, listening to Michael Buble during the holidays became some kind of tradition.

3. Kelly Clarkson – Wrapped in Red

You have to agree her voice is amazing and her Christmas album is just as amazing as her voice.

4. Pentatonix – That’s Christmas to Me

This. Band. Is. Everything. Their music is perfection and their Christmas album being no exception.

 5. Leona Lewis – Christmas With Love

I have no idea what she’s doing these days, but her Christmas album from 2013 is great.

*BONUS*

*She & Him – A Very She & Him Christmas

It’s Zooey Deschanel singing and it’s great!

Do you have a favorite Christmas album?

Now, this songs are not necessarily about autumn per se, but they really give me that autumn feeling.
