Merry Christmas everyone! For any of you who have been following my blog for a little while now, you’ll know that I love music. And on this special day, I thought I would share with you some of my favourite Christmas songs. (Note: these are not in any particular order because to pick one that is my #1 favourite would be extremely difficult!)
- “Christmas Is All In The Heart”, Steven Curtis Chapman
SCC is one my favourite artists and this song is just so peaceful and beautiful.
2. “Snow Falls”, Carried Away
I like Carried Away’s sound and harmonies. Where I live there isn’t any snow… but I can dream, right? (Not that I love snow, but it does seem strange without it.)
3. “Hark the Herald Angels Sing”, Pentatonix
Hark the Herald Angels Sing has been my favourite Christmas carol for years now. The version Pentatonix does isn’t exactly the most traditional. However, I still like what they did with it. Plus, their harmonies are simply amazing. They are all so talented!
4. “Where Are You Christmas?” Faith Hill
Christmas isn’t always a happy and joyous time for everyone. In the past few years, I’ve had a tough time during this season. This song truly captures this feeling in our hearts.
The Piano Guys do such an awesome job of this song that I couldn’t help but share their version too! Take a listen!
5. “Give This Christmas Away”, Matthew West & Amy Grant
I feel like this song speaks to us about the true spirit of Christmas! Love is meant to share!
6. “Christmas This Year”, Tobymac
Tobymac is such a great and talented artist! He has done songs in many different genres. This song is very uplifting and fun to listen to.
7. “Noel”, Chris Tomlin ft. Lauren Daigle
Lauren Daigle is an artist I discovered more recently. She has such a beautiful and powerful voice. Also, her song lyrics are very thoughtful.
8. “Mary Did You Know?”, Mark Lowry
Comedian and gospel singer Mark Lowry wrote the lyrics for the song “Mary Did You Know?”. And he does an amazing job singing it!
9. “Do They Know it’s Christmas?” Band Aid
People coming together for this project is so amazing and encouraging. This is true heart of Christmas – caring for others. (On a side note: the 1984 version is the best… sorry not sorry). You can’t get better than the original!
10. “Mary’s Boy Child”, Boney M.
I have such fond memories of this song! At my grandma’s house, she would play this song and I’d start dancing in her living room.
11. “Christmas Makes Me Cry”, Matthew West & Mandisa
Not to be too sad, but this song is too beautiful not to at least mention!
12. “The Heart of Christmas”, Matthew West
Yes, as you can guess, I also like Matthew west a lot.
**It’s officially midnight! Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you enjoy your time celebrating with your family**
