The best time of the year.
I absolutely love Christmas music.
I start playing it around the end of the summer, but most people don’t agree with my timing so I’ve decided to wait until now to blog about it.
I’ve heard that after Thanksgiving Holiday it is appropriate to begin playing Christmas music.
For the past few weeks I have been perfecting my Christmas music playlist.
I have been working off of this playlist for 2 or 3 years and I think I’ve got it down to a science.
It started with all of the traditional songs and it has now evolved to be a nice mix of modern and traditional.
And yes, there will be songs that will have to be left out.
But fear not, there will be a second edition of the playlist.
It’s wonderful what joy Christmas music can bring to your family and even more important what joy the spirit of God can bring to us all.
Whenever I start listening to Christmas music, It reminds me where all of the joy in the world comes from.
It reminds me that without Christ, Christmas and happiness would not exist.
So here it is, the first annual Christmas playlist:
1. Wonderful Christmas Time – Paul McCartney
