Christmas Music

Around this time every year I am bursting with Christmas spirit. I am basically an elf in dispatcher clothing.
I will be the first to admit that I go overboard on gifts. I spend oodles  of time picking out wrapping paper, matching ribbon and bows, tags and wrapping each gift. I love it. All of it. And boy oh boy do I love me some Christmas music.

Day after Thanksgiving? Game on! The Ipod gets reacquainted with the Itunes "Christmas" play list. Catchy title, I know. From that moment on Christmas tunes are cranking from anything that has the ability to spew music.

I get ridiculously excited when I hear some of my favorite songs for the first time that year. I can't help it. They are just soooo good! So what are some of my favorite holiday tunes you ask (because I know all 4 of you are dying to know)?

In no particular order:
1) "Drummer Boy"  by Josh Groban.

I could really stop right there. This song is beautiful. And that voice... ooooooooooooo LA LA! (sorry Jared).Enough drooling and back to the songs:

2) "O Holy Night"  by Point of Grace
3) "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer"  by Gene Autry
4) "Christmas Shoes" by Newsong  (grab a tissue for this one!)
5) "I'll be Home for Christmas"
6) "Christmastime" by Michael W. Smith
7) "It's Christmas Time" featuring Third Day and Various Artists from the City on a Hill album
8) Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas Song
9) Anything from Trans-Siberian Orchestra
10) "Mary Did You Know" by Michael English

So now it's your turn. What Christmas songs put you in the holiday spirit?

Anything from Josh Groban and the new Glee Christmas cd. No comments from the peanut gallery thanks. I'm an overboarder too. Still waiting on pictures of the stockings!
