My past two Christmases were spent away from home because I was serving a two year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Washington, DC metro area. While on my mission I acquired some great Christmas music, most of which was the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Which I love. They are soooo good. Seriously. Check them out.
Anywho, music of the Christmas season is meant to help us reflect on things such as winter fun, family, our Saviour and His love for us. They can be secular or religious, fast or slow, complicated or simple. I love them all. Well, most of them. I won't tell you which ones I don't like so that those songs aren't ruined for you.
My favorite Christmas season song is The Christmas Song (aptly named, no?). It has such wonderful chords and the words whisk me away back to my childhood. There are lots of artists who perform this song. I can't tell you whose rendition is my favorite, but I really just like piano and voice, not too jazzed up. Simple.
So now I have a question for y'all:
What is your favorite Christmas song? Why?
Also, include which artist did your favorite rendition.
I hope that you will be able to feel the wonderful Spirit of Christmas this season. Good uplifting music is one way to bring that special Spirit into your life.
