Y’all. This is my time! I know I say that in almost every Christmas post I write, but I just love this season so much! Of course, the beautiful Christmas lights, parties, and delicious treats are wonderful, but remembering what Christmas truly represents just brings joy to my heart. Jesus truly is the reason for the season and it just brings a special anointing to this time of year. One of my favorite things about this time of year is the joyful Christmas songs playing everywhere!
If it wouldn’t drive my husband completely nuts, I would totally start listening in July. From the traditional Christmas carols and hymns to the funny and current Christmas songs, I just can’t get enough! I love having Christmas music playing while I’m baking, decorating, or when I’m driving around looking at Christmas lights! Here are 67 of my favorite Christmas songs! I hope you enjoy!
