Christmas comes early...


It is no great secret that I love Michael Buble, right? Didn't think so. *wink* On October 24th the crooner finally (FINALLY) releases his first full-length Christmas album (in a regular and special edition, the latter -- to my knowledge -- only available through his website).

I was thrilled when a couple of preview videos finally started showing up online. The first video features Michael covering one of my all-time favorite Christmas songs, Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas is You":



The second video covers the recording of "Holly Jolly Christmas":



So, who else is looking forward to this album as much as I am? :)

It's about time! :) My mom is suspicious that this is just a re-release of his Christmas EP, plus a few new songs. As if that would stop her from buying it...

WTH?! It's my birthday and the word captcha is aging! Not cool, Blogger.

Oh my goodness! How did I not know about this?

But more importantly, why would Michael Buble do this to me? Why would he release a Christmas CD on October 24th when he knows how much I fight the temptation to listen to Christmas music until the second week of November? When he knows the agony that Target already causes me by placing the Christmas CD kiosk right in my usual path through the store?

Anyway...now I have two Christmas CDs to buy on the 24th- this one and the She & Him one. :)

Okay....I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS!!! In fact, I am going to put in a purchase request at work that the library add it to our collection. And then I would be the first one to have it =)

I just love Michael Buble! <3

@heidenkind - No kidding! Happy Birthday again -- and sorry about the captcha...that is so wrong. :P

@Kristin - Yes, how could you have missed this one? ;) 10/24 is going to be a very good day for Christmas music releases -- I'm looking forward to the She & Him Christmas album too! :)

@Ella - Sounds like an excellent plan! :)
