Hop into the Holiday Spirit with "My Kind of Christmas"

Christmas is just 15 days away, and your Holiday experience is not complete without Christina Aguilera's My Kind of Christmas. I had not heard one Christmas song this whole year until I started it off with this delightful pop performance of some classic Holiday hits. It was released on October 24th, 2000 in the U.S. and October 27th, 2000 in the U.K. The album went platinum in the U.S. and sold over 3.5 million copies worldwide. An interesting fact about the album is that the song, "Climb Every Mountain," originally performed by Julie Andrews in the movie, "The Sound of Music," and which can be heard on her "My Reflection" DVD, was recorded for My Kind of Christmas but the song remained absent when the physical release became available. The song has yet to be leaked through the internet, or through any other available source.
