An Old Fashioned Christmas
by Carpenters

How I miss that old fashioned Christmas!
Carols being sung by the tree,
Window's candlelight shining bright for the whole world to see
Children's eyes of sweet expectations

Wondering what each present will hold
Lying in their beds and impatient
On long Christmas eves of old

It used to be that all the family would gather for this one night
It used to be that special feeling shared together knowing Christmas was here one night a year

How I miss that old fashioned Christmas!
Memories that last through the years
Call me sentimental; don't mind if you do
I wish an old fashioned Christmas to you!

christmas just wouldn't be christmas without listening to the carpenters' "christmas portrait." karen's voice is so serene, sweet, and warm that it's perfect for singing all the classic christmas ballads. if there is a god, i thank him for giving us karen's wondrous voice.

When I was a little girl, My mom used to play the carpenters every year during christmas time. Whenever I hear them it takes me back to that special time, and I get so nostalgic. They're the best christmas songs I've ever heard, and will continue to be a tradition for me forever.

Paul Callas

Hearing these takes me way back, too. I've always loved the Carpenters. Merry Christmas.

Amazing job Ned I love Karen and Richard.


After reading the information about when and how this song came about I feel like it's a little of a sad Christmas song now. 😳


Thanks for posting this beautiful Christmas video. So well done -- audio and the gorgeous seasonal images.


It's Christmas Eve & as I drink my coffee I thought I would play this to give me the feeling of the spirit after all the hustle & bustle of getting ready. Wow, I am so glad I did. That was so beautiful & now I am ready in my heart to enjoy it completely. It was sent to my email auto-mail. Just in time. to give me that boost that only a Carpenter song & those pictures could do. It is perfectly put together. Thank you and Merry Christmas. Most Sincerely!

Hi Robert.  I come back to You Tube occasionally especially during Christmas time so I can watch and listen to the Carpenters.  I hope you're doing well.  God bless.Karl
