Have A Non Traditional Christmas

You may wonder why I’m doing this blog, well I’m doing Have A Non Traditional Christmas, because I’m tired of the same Christmas songs every year.

I mean I love Christmas and I’m a Christian with Christian values, but for all my life I had to hear the same songs and it’s boring.

When I was growing up, My Mom would play Mitch Miller albums everyday (at a child I hated it, but but now I’m enjoying it), as well as Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Andy Williams (in my life time, I started to enjoy it and remember My Parents).
