Blogmas #2: Top 5 Christmas Playlist

#blogmas on The Bibliovert

Well, Christmas time is upon us whether we are ready for it or not.  It seems to have snuck up on me a bit this year.  Are you ready for the Holiday season?

Music has always been a part of my life, no matter the time of year, but especially during Christmas. As a kid I remember my Mom going to the piano, pulling out the sheet music from the piano bench and sitting down to play. At times I could be found next to her singing along. I specifically remember singing, “Do You Hear What I Hear?” Just thinking about it gives me all the feels.  

Is there a song that brings you back to your childhood and Christmases years ago?

Below I have listed five of my favorite traditional and nontraditional Christmas songs.  The traditional song list could have been a mile long. There are just so many good choices. The non-traditional list was a little bit harder to put together. The Christmas season wouldn’t be the same for me, without these songs.
