      What I like about this CD is the fact that there are songs on here from a long time ago right up until the present day. I have always thought that there were never many Christmas songs; apart from the ones like ' Last Christmas' 'Sleigh Ride', I was only probably aware of a few, however this CD has introduced me to loads of Christmas which is good as it means that I don't only have to rely on Mariah Carey for Christmas music every year!

      My favourite songs on this CD are: Santa Baby and O Holy Night. Although there are many that I find likeable. I particularly like hearing the 'older' version of songs, such as Sinatara's 'Santa Clause Is Coming To Town', it makes a change from the Mariah Carey version (which I also like).

      There are songs to suit everyone on here, including children. There are lot of 'funny songs' which I think they will like. Such songs include: All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth. I always think that 'Jingle Bells' is a good kiddie's Christmas song, although I think it's far too slow and serious on this CD which is a shame as it is usually such a fun song.

      I think that because there is such a huge range of music on here which goes back quite a few years, lots of people will like this CD including teenagers and the elderly; I find it interesting hearing how music has changed through the years.

      I would definitely recommend this CD this Christmas; it's great to put on whilst entertaining guests, while your putting the tree up or doing some Christmas baking; it really gets you in the mood.

      Thanks for reading!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Ideal for an old-fashioned Christmas

      This CD is another that I bought as well as Now That's What I Call Xmas. The latter is made up of mostly modern songs, while this one consists mainly of retro and vintage Christmas classics. Think Holiday Inn, It's A Wonderful Life and White Christmas.

      The first disc of this double CD opens with that famous song, sung by Bing Crosby. It is followed by Judy Garland's lovely version of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, and Nat 'King' Cole's The Christmas Song ('chestnuts roasting on an open fire'...). Songs from Eartha Kitt and Frank Sinatra follow - a lovely festive feel. The disc also contains such classics as Winter Wonderland and It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas.

      There are some less-good and quite bizarre songs on the CD too, however. All I Want For Christmas (Is My Two Front Teeth) is incredibly strange, though it does explain my dad's bewildering reply when as a child I used to ask him what present he would like. I'm Walking Backwards for Christmas is rather strange too!

      The second disc contains other Christmas classics and lesser-known older tunes, such as Christmas And You and Little Jack Frost Get Lost. The disc closes with a number of carols sung by the likes of Bing Crosby and Judy Garland.

      Overall, this is a lovely double CD with some Christmas classics on. It would be ideal if you prefer the older Christmas tunes rather than more modern songs, and it is a bargain costing £4.98 on Amazon.
