I thought it would be fun to share with you some of my very favorite Christmas songs! The truth is I love all kinds of Christmas music, but this is a playlist that I listen to over and over again during the holidays. It reminds me of when my husband and I were dating and just starting our own Christmas traditions. We used to pick up Starbucks, still a novelty in our town, or a peppermint milkshake from Dewar’s, our local icecream parlor, and drive around looking at Christmas lights. Now I drive our kiddos to school and home and listen to the same Christmas songs. My daughter keeps asking to hear ”All I Want for Christmas is You.” What girl doesn’t love Mariah Carey?
I called this post Christmas Music for Thirty-Somethings, but really it’s for anybody who loves songs from the 90′s, with some 80′s and 2000′s thrown in.
Can you listen to this without seeing Macaulay Culkin singing into a comb?
6. Jingle Bells
7. O Holy Night
Barenaked Ladies with Sarah McLachlan
9. Elf’s Lament
Barenaked Ladies with Michael Buble
Hootie and The Blowfish
13. Christmas Song
Dave Matthews Band
19. Christmas in Hollis
19 and 20 are two of my favorites and they are both on the A Very Special Christmas CD on Amazon. It looks like “Christmas in Hollis” is on iTunes too, but not the U2 song.
“Hard Candy Christmas” is my all-time favorite Christmas song, though I don’t know if it is technically a Christmas song. I just love listening and singing along, even when my kids ask me to stop singing;0)
