Favorite Christmas Songs

Now that Thanksgiving is over, it's finally an appropriate time to start thinking about all things CHRISTMAS!  Even though I listen to Christmas music year round when the mood strikes, I really go all out this time of year.  I listen to it in the car, at work, and turn it on as soon as I get home.  I just want to be surrounded by all the Holly Jolly songs I can find, 24/7!

Here are a few of my favorite Christmas albums and songs (and if you want to here a playlist of all of these, plus a few extras, listen on Spotify!)


Mariah Carey - Merry Christmas

This is an album that I always listened to growing up.  I love how it's a mix of classic songs and new pop Christmas songs, all in Mariah's incomparable voice.


Josh Groban - Noel

If you're looking for more old-school songs- look no further than Josh Groban.  His voice is so amazing and gives me chills any time I hear it!


Christina Aguilera - My Kind of Christmas

Christina is one of my favorite singers of all time, so of course her Christmas album is at the top of my list.


Pentatonix - ALL!!

I believe that Pentatonix comes out with a new Christmas CD every year, and they have all been amazing.  They re-do all of the classics to make their own a capella masterpiece.  Love it!


Dave Koz and Friends - The 25th of December

For a more instrumental/jazzy Christmas, give Dave Koz a listen.  My stand-out favorite is Let it Snow!


Trans-Siberian Orchestra - Christmas Eve and Other Stories

Is it really Christmas is TSO isn't playing!?  I had to include this incredible group, and my dream is to one day see them perform live.


Kelly Clarkson - Wrapped in Red

This is a newer CD but it's already one of my favorites.  Kelly has such an incredible voice and has some great original Christmas songs on here!

  4. Mariah Carey Christmas is still the best!!! Also Nsync Christmas CD. Those are the only two I have and I don't really like Christmas music.
