Favorite Christmas Music

Favorite Christmas Music

PicMonkey Collage

So, I love music, and I love Christmas…and I also love Christmas music.  Here are some of my old and new favorites:

Bing Crosby

It would almost be silly if He wasn’t at the top of the list.  No matter how many versions of White Christmas I hear, I still like his the best:)

Frank Sinatra

I have a couple of his Christmas albums and they just scream classic Christmas.  Perfect tree trimming tunes.

Amy Grant

She has several Christmas albums, but this one is my favorite.  It’s not Christmas time until I hear the first track of this cd. 🙂

Michael W. Smith

This is such a relaxing album.  We got it when we were first married and it’s been a staple in the rotation since.

Carpenters Christmas

There are some things that can usher you back to childhood so quickly.  The smell of Ciara perfume takes me back and makes me think of holding hands with my Grandma.  The color orange always reminds me of the carpet in the sanctuary of the church I grew up in, and the sound of the first track on this cd takes me immediately back to Christmas as a child.  This was a favorite of my parents, and is still one of mine today.  I don’t know if I would love it if it weren’t for the emotional tote bag of memories it brings with it-it’s a solid album though.

New Favorites:

Phil Wickham

I love this album, start to finish-and I rarely say that.  It is worshipful, and easy to take in.  Just…. perfect.

Kari Jobe

Well, I do love Kari-just in general.  As you would expect her Christmas albums are very worshipful.  Oh Little Town of Bethlehem, The First Noel and Saviors Here are a couple of my favorites from these albums.
