I LOVE Christmas! It’s my favorite holiday and I love everything about it. (except Santa Claus who I never believed in, but I don’t hate him, he’s just not important) So as you might imagine I’m probably going to be writing quite a few Christmas related posts this month, starting with today.
I refuse to do anything Christmas related until the day after Thanksgiving, and one of the first Christmasy things I usually do is listen to Christmas music, it really gets me in the mood for Christmas. “O Come All Ye Faithful” is my favorite Christmas Carol, though “O Holy Night” is a close second, both songs remind me of what Christmas is really all about: the birth of Christ. My favorite non-Carol Christmas song is “Breath of Heaven” by Amy Grant, it touches me every time I hear it, thinking about what Mary must’ve felt when she was pregnant with the Son of God!
Now for a fun one! While there are quite a few non-religious Christmas songs I enjoy my favorite is probably “What is Christmas?” by Trans-Siberian Orchestra. It’s really fun and funny, but at the same time makes you think about what Christmas really means.
Day 337: Thank you Lord for Christmas music, it gets me ready to celebrate the birth of your son.
What are you thankful for today? Leave a Comment and let me know, I’d love to read it!
