Ellf Christmas

The Sixth Day of Romance


today's theme:

CHristmas cheer

The best way to spread Christmas is cheer singing loud for all to hear.
— Buddy the Elf

a note from eLLf Christmas's sponsor, Lauren Layne


Hi everyone!

I'm sure it surprises nobody that we're a huge fan of Christmas here at eLLf Christmas. On a good year, we make it to Thanksgiving before turning on Michael Bublé's Christmas. On a bad year, we may not make it to Halloween ;-)

Which means that today is ALL about the music! We've got holiday album recommendations, our favorite versions of "Baby It's Cold Outside," a custom eLLf Christmas playlist, plus the chance to win a six-month subscription to Spotify Premium (our music service for EVERYTHING).


the Christmas eLLf 


the best of "Baby it's cold outside"

Now, we'd be hard-pressed to name a Christmas song we don't like, but if we had to pick a favorite? Baby It's Cold Outside, hands down.

In fact, it was the first-dance song at Lauren Layne & Mr. Layne's wedding! (it'll 10 years on December 30, 2016!)

Anyway, we've rounded up some of our favorite versions!


Dean Martin & female chorus

We don't love that the female voices aren't even named, but this is one of the classic versions, and the one LL and Mr. Layne danced to!

Darren Criss & Chris Colfer

Better known as the "Glee" version, and fun fact, just about the only version LL's low-ish voice can sing along with ;-)


• • • 


Idina Menzel & Michael Buble

Two of our favorite voices, singing our favorite song? Yes please!


• • • 


Jessica Simpson and Nick Lache

Um, yeah, can you tell LL grew up in the boy band era? #notashamed


• • • 


John Travolta & Oliva Newton-John

Admittedly not the strongest vocals on the list, but the Grease fans will delight in hearing Sandy and Danny together again! 



See the song in action! 

We've also rounded up our favorite video versions!

(1) Idina Menzel and Michael Buble voices + two cute kids + old Hollywood glamor vibe? Perfection

(2) Kurt and Blaine. Glee fans know what I'm talking about.

(3) Lady Gaga and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, because I know I'm not the only one with a crush on that guy.

(4) Okay, so there's not much to look at in the video, but you MUST watch this one for the lyrics. One of our favorites!
