Top Christmas Songs

In November, when the radio started playing Christmas music, Kaitlin and I were driving to Hagerstown (a two hour round trip) and listening to Christmas tunes and singing along.  We started to discuss how we liked this version better than that version.  Before you know it, we were back home and each had a list of our favorite Christmas songs.  She even made me a play list.  I told her I was going to put it on my blog, but somehow never got to it.

Brianna's friend, Jo at Scraps from my work basket, reminded me of it when she had her favorite Christmas music up the other day.  At long last, I am doing it.  Maybe Sam had a good point the other day after all.  Of course, it took Kaitlin's good memory to hunt down the list we made so long ago.  Thank God for good daughters. 

There are so many tunes which are called Christmas songs but really have nothing to do with the holiday at all.  I find most of those rather annoying.  Even though, some of them are fun to sing.  So I really would have to break it down to two groups.  The group of songs that really honor the King of the holiday and the songs that are fun because they are the traditional Christmas songs my mom sang with us when we were growing up.  There is no other particular order... it was hard enough to narrow it down to begin with.
