Do You Hear What I Hear?

By · November 29, 2009 at 11:29 am

I’m guilty, I’ve already turned my radio dial to the Christmas station!  I waited until after Thanksgiving to listen to the music almost full time.

While I like Christmas music, I am very picky about what I’ll listen to.

My list doesn’t make any sense.   I love old classics, but if I come across any of the following songs, I stop and  sing along!  (They’re listed in no particular order). 

What are your favorites?

“Santa Baby” -Eartha Kitt

“All I Want for Christmas” – Mariah Carey

“Happy Christmas (War is Over)” -John Lennon

“Here Comes Santa Claus”

“Rocking Around the Christmas Tree”

“Jingle Bell Rock”

I do love the religious & nonreligous Christmas songs. I saw Mark Lowry on the Gaither program last night singing his song,”Mary Did You Know?” Oh My Dear Lord! How awesome! It gives me chills every time Here is one version from YouTube:

I think it sums up the meaning of what Christmas is in the spiritual sense.

On the non-religious side, you can’t beat Mel Torme and “The Christmas Song.” Here he is singing it and telling the story of how it was written:
