question of the day: What’s your favorite Christmas music album?

John Denver and the Muppets A Christmas Together

Before the holiday season slips away from us, one more Christmas question:

What’s your favorite Christmas music album?

Mine is, hands down, no question, John Denver and the Muppets: A Christmas Together [Amazon U.S.] [Amazon Canada] [Amazon U.K.]. I’ve only seen the TV special that spawned it a few times, and not since I was a kid, because it’s not available on DVD. But I listen to the album constantly during the holidays (and sometimes in the off-season, too), because it is crammed with not only the usual Muppet madness — Miss Piggy directing a rendition of “Christmas Is Coming” is outright chaos — but also some of the loveliest nontraditional holiday songs I’ve ever heard: “A Baby Just Like You” never fails to make me cry.
