Are You Listening to Christmas Music Yet?

I'll confess, I tuned in to the lovely melodies of the holidays as soon as Star 93.3 started playing them. And I may have sneaked a few in before then, from my Amazon play list. 

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.
