Christmas In My Heart – Connie Francis

When the eldest of my 3 daughters was about 8 years old, in 1983, I bought her a second-hand study desk for homework. The desk was pretty old and cheap because we didn’t have much money back then and I needed to give it a coat of paint before my daughter could use it. When I opened the bottom drawer to take it out for painting, there were about 6 or 7 old vinyl records that had been left there by the previous owner. I don’t even remember what the others were but this one, Christmas In My Heart by Connie Francis from 1959, is now the oldest in my collection and my absolute Christmas favourite!
