I love Christmas music. L-O-V-E IT! I turn it on while we're driving home from Thanksgiving and it stays on through Christmas Day. I belt out the words to almost every song (except that song Christmas Shoes....the station gets changed immediately. Way too depressing for Christmas). I hear the music and my soul fills with JOY!
My love for Christmas music has resulted in a tradition in our little family. Every year I get a new Christmas music CD in my stocking. We listen to it as soon as possible and I look forward to adding it to my music for the following year.
I, of course, have my favorites. My favorite secular song is "All I Want for Christmas is You" by Mariah Carey. LOVE IT! My favorite hymns are "Joy to the World" and "Oh Come All Ye Faithful." I pray that we sing those two some time during the Advent season every year.
Do you have any favorite Christmas songs? What are some songs you love? Any that you can't stand? I want to hear about your favorites so I can add them to my iPod playlist!
