If there's one thing I love, it's music. Even more so, I absolutely adore a good Christmas song. There's nothing that can get me in the spirit more than a song about everyone's favorite snowman or a nice little ballad that sings of fireplaces and opening presents on Christmas morning. I do have a few favorites I'd like to recommend, though.
1. "Carol of the Bells"
This song is SO UNDERRATED. I don't hear enough people talk about how crazy awesome this song is. While it isn't the most Christmas-y song out there, it's a fantastic piece of music. If the right choir or orchestra performs it, it sends chills up my spine. There's just something about the harmonies, the words, and the powerful melody that make me love this song so so much.
2. "All I Want For Christmas Is You"
Everyone loves this song and if you don't, you're lying. I'm not even big on Mariah Carey but damn, this song is amazing! It's just so much fun and happy, you can't help but dance along. Plus, you gotta love those high notes Mariah belts out!
3. "Tender Tennessee Christmas"
Alright, so maybe I'm bias here but I love this song so much. It makes me think of home when I hear it, and being sat around the tree opening gifts. It makes me think of family, of friends, or how much I truly love the holiday. It makes me think how Christmas wouldn't feel the same if I wasn't here. Sure we don't get a lot of snow but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
4. "Where Are You Christmas"
"How the Grinch Stole Christmas" is, without a doubt, my favorite Christmas movie. This song, sung by Faith Hill, is absolutely wonderful. It isn't particularly happy but the vocals on this song give it a top spot for me. This is another song that gives me chills when I listen to it. If you've never heard it, you seriously need to.
5. "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays"
Man, remember when boybands dropped Christmas albums (One Direction, where you at?!). Those were the days. But seriously, this is actually an awesome Christmas song. Let Justin and JC sing to you this holiday season with their sultry tones and make you wish you were opening them this Christmas.
