My Favorite Songs Christmas Playlist
Tell the world what you have found here!

When December rolls around, I’m ready to listen to Christmas carols day and night.

Over the years, I’ve accumulated a list of favorites and each year I make a CD to play in my car. Yes, I know that’s old-fashioned. My van is old enough to play CDs.

With classics from Handel and The Nutcracker and modern favorites like Kari Jobe’s When Hope Came Down, it’s a weird and wonderful combination of Christmas music. I have classics from Amy Grant and Twila Paris on it and several Christmas hymns that are hundreds of years old.

I love Christmas Music!

In fact, Christmas music is one of the highlights of the holiday season for me. I make playlists for the car, the house, and parties. 

You will notice that I have very eclectic taste from classical music to the latest Christmas song from Kari Jobe. 

Amy Grant is one of my vintage favorites. No one sings Christmas songs like Amy. Unless, of course, it’s Twila Paris or Julie Andrews

Trans-Siberian Orchestra is another favorite. I have several of their albums. 

Here is my Christmas playlist. This is the music we will listen to on Christmas morning this year. 

It is a combination of worshipful music and Christmas classics. 

Notice there are 3 different versions of Canon in D. I just can’t help it! I love that song! I also love some not-so-well-know songs like “Wandering Pilgrim” and “C’mon Ring Those Bells.” 

I encourage you to listen to some of these old and new classics. They will definitely stir up Christmas joy!
