It’s one week till Christmas, ya’ll! One week! (Still trying to bang that concept into my head.)

Because I’ve enjoyed some recent Christmas posts from other bloggers, I decided to get a little festive around here myself. I’m sure the snow fall on the blog contributes to the effect, but I don’t even remember how to control that, so to me that really doesn’t count.

I’m in a “favorite things” mood, so this week you’ll get to hear more than you want about my favorite Christmas activities, traditions, songs, movies, books…you get the idea.

Tonight is my favorite Christmas songs.

There are so many good ones out there that it’s next to impossible to choose just one, so I’m not even going to try. Instead, I’ll categorize them (and I’m sure I could come up with more!):

  • Favorite hymn: Hark, the Herald Angels Sing
  • Favorite melody: It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
  • Favorite chord progression in a melody: We Wish You a Merry Christmas
  • Favorite artist: Josh Groban (“Noel” Album)
  • Favorite classic: “Happy Holiday” with Bing Crosby
  • Favorite album: Merry Christmas from the Beach Boys
  • Favorite secular song: The Christmas Song I changed my mind to The 12 Days of Christmas
  • Favorite celtic Christmas: Celtic Woman (ok, that was a no brainer)
  • Favorite carol: any English carol
  • Favorite instrumental: Sleigh Ride
  • Favorite piano solo: “Deck the Halls” by David Huntsinger
  • Favorite music memory: “There Is No Christmas Like a Home Christmas” played by Grammy and sung by the Fell family females
  • Funniest favorite music memory: Practicing singing “Carols Sing” with my mom & sisters all day every day one year, and annoying my brothers excessively in the process

What are a few of your favorite Christmas songs?

  1. Wow! I thought I would fill out your little chart myself but by the third one I realized there was just no way! ;) I like “O Little Town of Bethlehem” and my favorite Christmas music memory is sitting around Christmas Eve picking out and singing Christmas songs with Grandma, Grandpa and the cousins.
