Christmas music is a source of happiness for the ears. You can quote me on that 😉
When I was younger I would be playing Christmas music as early as October, sometimes I would even let it slip in during the summer. I’ve had Christmas in July and ugly sweater parties. And in order to create ambiance I realized nothing puts you in the mood for Christmas like listening to your favorite Christmas songs. Here are some of my favorites.
My Top 12 Christmas Songs
Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree– Brenda Lee
*Every time I hear this song I think of the scene in Home Alone where Kevin is having his fake house party with dancing mannequins and such.*
What Christmas Means to Me– Stevie Wonder
O Holy Night -*NSYNC
*Celine Dion’s version also makes me cry every damn time. It’s beautiful.
And this is a GORGEOUS performance by the former duo Everly.
(Bethany Joy Lenz & Amber Sweeney)
The First Noel– *NSYNC
This Christmas– Donny Hathaway
Last Christmas– Hilary Duff
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays– *NSYNC
Santa Claus is Coming to Town– Justin Bieber
Christmas Love– Justin Bieber
Christmas Eve– Justin Bieber
War is Over – The Fray
Kiss Me At Midnight– *NSYNC
And listen to the songs that touch your soul during this holiday season!
*All these songs remind me of a poem I posted a while back and because it’s snowng out here now, I thought it was fitting to re-introduce it. Take a read if you wish. 😉
