The tree is trimmed. The stockings are hung. Christmas is in the air!
Last year, I asked for guest posts about everyone’s favorite Christmas songs. Y’all stepped up by writing some pretty awesome stuff. This year? I’ve decided to share some of my own favorites. I’ve created a list of my 25 favorite songs that are a must-have on any Christmas playlist. Some of them are songs you’ve probably never heard before. So I’m happy to share a little Christmas spirit by introducing you to these great songs.
OK. You might not think some of them are “great.” That’s OK. They have some sentimental value to them so they have to be on my list even if you think they’re corny – kind of like this first entry, Santa Wants a Tuba for Christmas.
During my tuba playing days, TubaChristmas became an annual tradition for me. There’s nothing like listening to a chorus of low brass playing Christmas carols. And while we never played this song at any of the concerts where I performed, I was still quite aware of this song. Hearing this song touches a special place in my heart and makes me join Santa in wishing that I had a tuba for Christmas, too.
But don’t tell Christy. I think the last thing she’d like to see is a gigantic brass behemoth taking up space in our apartment.
