If every year come December, you dream of a white Christmas with classic holiday recordings, then Holiday Traditions is the channel for you!  Set the soundtrack to your family’s festivities with songs from the ’40s through the ’60s by artists such as Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, Ray Conniff, Nat “King” Cole and more.

Here are three of my picks for the kind of music you’ll hear. ‘Tis the season!

1. White Christmas – Bing Crosby, the best-selling single of all time according to Guinness, crosses all generations. It will never go out of style.

2. The Lord’s Prayer – Perry Como gives me chills and chokes me up a little with this song. It’s so beautifully done and it reminds us of what it’s really all about.

3. Happy Holiday – Peggy Lee has a funky bass line that reminds me of Disney theme park music of the ‘60s.
