Christmas Songs

Psalm 100:1–2 (KJV)

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.  Serve the Lord with gladness: Come before his presence with singing.

RayMcDAre you enjoying some Christmas music some Christmas songs this year? I’m listening to Pandora Radio as I type – a channel called Pentatonix (Holiday). I also listen to Frank Sinatra (Holiday). On my XM radio in the car I listen to Channel 18 (Holiday Traditions) and Channel 58 (Country Christmas). On the regular radio I listen to FM 97.1 because they are playing Christmas music 24 x 7.

With Christmas coming – I was curious – are you listening to any favorite channels? If so – how about sharing them with our readers. What are your favorite Christmas Carols? Name your top five if you would. It might be interesting to read what others appreciate.

Not in any particular order – but I would name these hymns as my favorite.
—- Noel
—- O Holy Night
—- Away in a Manger
—- Silent Night
—- O Little Town of Bethlehem

How about some non-hymn Christmas Songs?  These would be my five favorite – again – in no particular order.

—- Mary Did you Know
—- Grandma got run over by a reindeer
—- I’ll be home for Christmas
—- Silver Bells
—- I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas

How about adding your list? It would be interesting I think.

The Scriptures tells us to make a joyful noise. Let’s be happy this Christmas season and sing praises to God! Jesus has come to deliver us from sin and death – we have loads to be happy about for sure!

Here’s a few YouTube versions of a couple of favorites sung by one of my favorite groups – Pentatonix – and one by Bing Crosby (which reminds me of home as a child and dad playing this very same album.



Just something for us to think about today as you go on your way.
