A Very Merry Katharine McPhee

What makes the perfect holiday album? I look for amazing vocals, songs you can sing along to, and enough beat to get you boogying while you’re decorating the tree. Lending her powerful pipes to classic carols, American Idol alum Katharine McPhee delivers that and more on her album, “Christmas Is The Time (To Say I Love You).”  To get in the spirit, we asked McPhee to share some of her Christmas memories and must-haves.

Best Present Ever…
One Christmas, my parents surprised my sister and me with a trip to Hawaii. As we were looking at the gifts Santa brought us, they opened the front door and there was a stretch limo waiting to take us to the airport. We freaked out!

Family Favorite…
One of my favorite holiday traditions is the day after Thanksgiving, we blast Christmas music and decorate the house from head to toe. I think it’s a girl thing because I have to beg my husband to do it each year. Conveniently, football always seems to be on at the same time [laughs].

Tastiest Tradition…
I like to eat everything at Christmas. But, my dad makes the best Christmas-colored green beans. He uses sour cream, fried onions and tomatoes. They’re so good.

Favorite Song on the Album…
“It’s Not Christmas Without You“. I wrote it, and I think it’s a great holiday love song. It reminds me of one of my favorite songs, “Miss You Most (At Christmas Time),” from Mariah Carey’s Christmas record.
