December 4th - Favorite Christmas Music

I just LOVE Christmas music!  I could listen to it all year long; but it is mostly heard during "the season"...what I don't love is that "season" has come earlier and earlier and earlier - where stores begin to play Christmas music about the same time they start decorating...sometimes even before we can get past Halloween!

Now, don't get me wrong...if I walk into a store and they are playing Christmas music, it doesn't matter when it is, I will definitely be singing along - at least as much as I can sing at the time!  My car holds a collection of Christmas music - year round.  Well, that was actually an accident; I didn't switch out the regular CD's for the Christmas ones last year!

But to pick out my favorites?  That would be hard for me to do; but I will list out a few of them:


"All I Want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth"
with Michael Buble' and Elmo

"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer"

"Frosty the Snowman"

"Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer"

"I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus"

"I Want a Hippotomas for Christmas"

Heard this on the radio this morning - 
Brightened up my day as I sang along with it!


"Silent Night, Holy Night"

"O Come All Ye Faithful"

"Joy to the World"

"It Came Upon a Midnight Clear"

"We Three Kings"

"What Child Is This?"


"Blue Christmas" and 
"I'll Be Home for Christmas"
Elvis Presley

"Christmas in Dixie"

"Jingle Bell Rock"

"Where Are You Christmas"
by Faith Hill


One of my all-time favorites, made even more special by this awesome group, Pentatonix:

"The Little Drummer Boy"

And, last but certainly not least,
the most beautiful of all - 

"The Hallelujah Chorus"
from Handel's "The Messiah"

My friend has this quote on her wall:

Music reflects how I am feeling and helps me to stop and listen to the words; and are very often the words that I am needing to hear.  

These words from "Where Are You, Christmas?" puts the holidays into perspective for me:  "If there is love in your heart and your mind, you will feel like Christmas all the time."

Praying love is in YOUR heart and mind and you find Christmas all around you!  Can't wait to see what other favorites are shared!

Have you heard the Pentatonix version of "Mary Did You Know"? it is out this year and is great!
