What Would The Christmas Season Be Without Music?

WHAT WOULD THE CHRISTMAS SEASON BE WITHOUT MUSIC?

DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE CHRISTMAS SONG?

 

 “Let us have music for Christmas…
Sound the trumpet of joy and rebirth;
Let each of us try, with a song in our hearts,
To bring peace to men on earth.”

... Mildred L. Jarrell

 

What would the Christmas holiday season be without music? Christmas music is a big part of the holidays and it's the only holiday with such a wide range of music so integral to its celebration. I look forward to the music very year and during the month of December my car radio is always set to the station(s) that play "all Christmas music all the time." 

 

I'm certain we all have our favorite Christmas songs. My personal preference remains for traditional songs like Silent Night, O' Holy Night, Joy To The World,  Hark The Herald Angels Sing, etc.  I suspect I'm a bit "old fashioned" in my Christmas music preferences.

 

My favorite Christmas song is O' Holy Night.

What's your favorite Christmas song?

 

 

 

#1 Christmas Holiday Song In 2021

 

"All I Want For Christmas Is You" by Maria Carey  turns 27 years old this Christmas season and has topped the charts in first place in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, not just in the USA, but in 26 countries.  “All I Want for Christmas is You” became the first and only holiday single to take home the RIAA’s coveted Diamond Award (in recognition of ten million sales and streaming units in the United States). “All I Want for Christmas is You” is also the all-time best-selling Christmas single by a female artist and one of the top-selling physical singles in music history. It’s the first holiday ringtone to be certified double platinum by the RIAA.

 “There is a Christmas song upon the air,
There is a joy innate within the heart;
An inner sense of peace, a holy light
Illumines life and sets these days apart.”

Ron and Alexandra Seigel hi Alexandra... I remember when Drummer Boy first came out... probably mostly because my brother was all ga-ga over that song.

I love all the songs and can remember as a kid going house to house with our priest to bring the Christmas wishes to the parishioners as well as an extra Christmas donation for him and a cookie for the carolers.

The voice is not what it used to be but I do try to harmonize at mass when I can

Ed Silva hi Ed... I grew up with Christmas season being very church-centered, although in my case it was German Lutheran and not Catholic... Christmas is a big holiday for Germans... so my church really did it big.

Ed Silva hi Ed... I've been known to do the same when someone here in the Rain has posted a music video I love.

It is too hard to pick one favorite.

Feliz Navidad for its simple, but fun loving nature.  This one it the most likely to make me sing along and I really should be alone when singing. 😂

Anything by Nat King Cole, but The Christmas Song is awesome.

My favorite guilty pleasure, Last Christmas by Wham.  It is hard for a Metallica, AC/DC, Guns and Roses fan to admit this out loud.  Please do not tell anyone!

What would Christmas be without the King and I'll Be Home for Christmas.

And what says Christmas more that Bing Crosby and White Christmas.

Burl Ives, Gene Autry and TSO all deserve a mention too. 

I like Christmas music so much, I am known to play it during the middle of summer much to the chagrin of those around me.

Ive got a 300 cd player with nothing but Christmas music. I put it on shuffle and let it go. Some of the most beautiful words and music ever written are tied with the holiday season.

Nina- you have such a wonderful way of providing us with so much information!  Not just "what's your favorite Christmas song?" but so much more. I love the song by Mariah Carey, and I also love Jingle Bell Rock and "Oh Holy Night"

I've found all of the holiday music channels on our Sirius radio in the car and we listen when we're out driving or at home on Alexa.

My favorite constantly changes Nina Hollander, Broker as new artists and old come out with new material. Last year I did a post on a new (to me) version of O Holy Night that actually made me cry bvecause of the amount of feeling the artist put into it. This year when ever I hear someone else sing that song all I can think of is how great the effort this girl put into it. Adrienne Cowan O Holy Night

A word of caution, Adrienne Cowan is NOT a Christian singer. Her normal gendre is heavy metel. If only Christian artists would put the emotion into the hymns and Christian songs that Adriene puts into this one.

Nina Hollander, Broker - my son was a camper, counselor in training and counselor at the same summer camp that Josh Groban attended in Maine. His voice is angelic! I love Christmas music. Thanks for the awesome videos to start my day!
