On Sunday the church's worship team led one of my favorites, Go Tell it on the Mountain. I've loved that song since I was a little girl. There are so many wonderful Christmas songs, both old and new. I'm writing a blog post for work later this week. For the post I asked my co-workers to name their top three favorite holiday songs. Of course I had to answer the question, too.
I have so many that I love. I had a hard time narrowing the list down. But I did.
My all time favorite has to be "The Christmas Song." You know the one about chestnuts roasting on an open fire. I am partial to Johnny Mathis's version, his voice is so smooth. And no doubt we listened to his version on the radio when I was young.
My numbers two and three are performed in a Charlie Brown Christmas. Charlie Brown's friends sing "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" at the end of the show. I love this carol because it reminds me of the joy the angels brought to the shepherds. I can't imagine how they must have felt, minding their own business on the hillside, when the angels appeared. How exciting to receive the news of Jesus birth first hand.
Last, I love the song "Christmas Time Is Here" written by Lee Mendelson and Vince Guaraldi.
What are your favorite holiday songs? I'd love to know.
