Rachel's Favorite Christmas Songs

So, many of you may know that I love (love, love) Christmas music. I allow myself to listen to it for a week in July and I usually begin listening to for reals in October. I completely ignore that whole 'after Thanksgiving' nonsense. Anyway, for this, the week of Christmas, I decided to share with you some of my favorites. These aren't in any particular order.

Here goes:

I Heard the Bells - MercyMe

Favorite Lyrics:

And in despair I bowed my head "There is no peace on Earth" I said For hate is strong and mocks the song Of peace on Earth, good will to men

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep God is not dead nor does He sleep The wrong shall fail, the right prevail With peace on Earth, good will to men

You're Here - Francesca Battistelli

Favorite Lyrics:

Hold on now, got to take a deep breath
I don't know what to say when I look in your eyes
You made the world before I was born
And here I am holding you in my arms tonight

That's Christmas to Me - Pentatonix

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFjdfjrtf1Q

Come on now, pretty much any Christmas song by Pentatonix is pretty great! Here's one more:

Little Drummer Boy - Pentatonix

Family Tree - Dave Barnes

Favorite Lyrics

And I don't know where I'm going
But I do know who I'll be
These memories and names like leaves all hang on us
The family tree

We're older now, we all have changed
But we all laugh at the same old things
We'll spend the night with memories
Gathered 'round the family tree

Joy to the World (Unspeakable Joy) - Chris Tomlin

Favorite Lyrics:

Joy, unspeakable joy
And overflowing where no tongue can tell
Joy, unspeakable joy
Rises in my soul, never lets me go

Now this is not an exhaustive list by any means, but it's a good sampling of what I listen to

And to sign this off, Auld Lang Syne - Straight No Chaser
