Music plays a large roll in my life. I love music. I love it in the car, while working, while cleaning, while dancing! It moves me, and gives me energy. So it is no surprise that I absolutely love Christmas music. Yes, I’m one of those that starts listening to it early November and can’t bear to turn it off until Valentine’s day. My Christmas selection is surprisingly large considering I only listen to it a quarter of the year! The past month as I’ve let my iPod Christmas playlist play constantly throughout the day, I note when there’s a song that really strikes a chord with me. So I’ve compiled a list. Some of the songs I’ve loved forever, and a few are newbies.

Stille Nacht – Mannheim Steamroller
Believe – Josh Groban
Where are you Christmas – Faith Hill
Celebrate me Home – Kenny Loggins
River – Sarah McLachlan
Winter Song – Sarah Bareilles & Ingrid Michaelson
Silent Night – Priscilla Ahn
