Music is one of my favorite parts of the holiday season. Growing up, my parents had certain records, cassettes, and CDs they’d pull out and we’d play over and over again throughout the month of December. Christmas memories from my childhood play to the soundtrack of the Nutcracker Suite, Mitch Miller and the Gang, and the King’s Singers, to name a few. I love knowing the classics but also finding new and interesting songs every year. I love hearing songs I haven’t heard for a year on the radio and singing Christmas hymns in church with my family. I love Christmas music so much that I have several days of it on my laptop and something like sixteen versions of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”
Over the month of December, I’m going to share twenty-five (and maybe a few extras!) of my favorite holiday songs with you! Also, would you share with me your favorite Christmas songs? I always like to discover new music. Check back tomorrow and every day until Christmas for a new song!
