My 10 favorite Christmas songs.
Mary Did You Know
Breath of Heaven
Silent Night - I especially love it in German
Emanuel, God With Us - Point of Grace
Oh Come All Ye Faithful - Josh Groban
It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas - Andy Williams
Oh Holy Night
Mary's Little Boy Child - The one we did as teens in Youth Choir
You may be wondering why in the world I have Andy Williams as one of my favorites.
Well when we were first married, I asked the Colonel
(of course he wasn't a Colonel then!)
to please pick up some Christmas music during the week
so when we put our tree up we would have something to listen to.
He came home with the entire collection of the Messiah.
He noticed the look on my face and asked,
"What's wrong with the Messiah?"
Well, I told him that I thought he would purchase something
a little more "Christmasy."
That's the word I used.
He looked at me and said,
"You asked for Christmas music and this is the best there is."
He then really noticed the look on my face and said,
"Okay, let's go pick something out that's a bit more Christmasy."
We then went and picked out the Andy Williams CD that we play
every year when putting up the Christmas tree
and we have a laugh over our definition of Christmas music.
Although I have come to love The Messiah as much as he does!
