Favorite Christmas Songs

I was just running around my house doing chores and listening to beautiful Christmas music. I started to wonder what my top favorites really are!!! So, in a particular order {ha!}:

#1: I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas
#2: I'll Be Home For Christmas
#3: Baby It's Cold Outside
#4: Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
#5: Grown Up Christmas List
#6: It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

{and for good measure #7: 12 Days of Christmas BY Straight No Chaser...not a classic, but still it is fuuunny as heck!!}

And I don't love just any version of these songs! Some versions are terrible and some are so classic that no one should ever attempt to recreate the greatness that has already been done...for example...NO ONE will ever top BING CROSBY singing White Christmas!! And as I've been listening to the Christmas channel on TV, I've come to love Al Hirt and Ann Margret's version of Baby It's Cold Outside. Some other classic singers of Christmas music...Andy Williams, Perry Como, The Carpenters, Elvis...some not so classic, but wonderful as well...Amy Grant, Jessica Simpson, Mariah Carey, Harry Connick Jr., Carrie Underwood and so many others!!

Music alone can stir up feelings of such happiness this time of year...and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! What are your favorites?


  1. Just today I heard "Baby, it's Cold Outside" by Norah Jones and Willie Nelson...I LOVED it! Their voices are awesome together!

  2. Oh, and I read The Best Christmas Pageant Ever to my class last week. It always makes me think of you! (I know the title should be underlined or italics, but I don't know how to do that on blogger!)
