My Top 5 Favorite Christmas Songs

I love Christmas songs, carols, and holiday songs! I do, however, have a pet peeve about hearing Christmas music before Thanksgiving is over. I just don’t want to listen to them until the day after Thanksgiving. It may be just me… like I said it’s a pet peeve.

From that point on though, bring on the Christmas songs. I was thinking about which Christmas songs I enjoy listening to most and could come up with five rather quickly.  So without further ado, here are…

My Top 5 Favorite Christmas Songs

Favorite Christmas Songs Img

Silent Night by Pentatonix

5. Silent Night – This version by Pentatonix is beautiful and somewhat haunting. Breathtaking, really. And Silent Night is one of my favorites from childhood too.

Hallelujah by Pentatonix

4. Hallelujah – I could listen to this version over and over again. It is one of the most beautiful songs, ever, not just for Christmas.

Mary, Did You Know?

3. Mary, Did You Know? – Sung by Pentatonix (I know, I really love Pentatonix… and they sing Christmas songs beautifully) is absolutely stunning!

“Do You Hear What I Hear” sung by Idina Menzel

2. Do You Hear What I Hear – I love this song and this version sung by Frozen singer Idina Menzel, is beautiful.

The Little Drummer Boy/Peace On Earth by Boy by David Bowie and Bing Crosby

1. The Little Drummer Boy – is my favorite Christmas song from my childhood. I’ve always loved it and this version by David Bowie and Bing Crosby is just beautiful.

If you’ve never heard it before or it’s been years since you’ve listened to this version – take a listen, you’ll be glad you did. There voices blend beautifully.

Bonus Christmas Song

Christmas Lights – by Coldplay. I’m a big Coldplay fan, so I cannot believe I wasn’t familiar with this song until recently, so wanted to add it here.

I will be listening to and singing Christmas songs all day, every day from now until Christmas night!  I hope you enjoy my favorite Holiday songs and I would love to hear yours.

Obviously, I love Pentatonix, since three of my five choices are sung by them. They really do have beautiful voices and can definitely sing the heck out of a good Christmas song.

I’ll more than likely keep these 6 Christmas songs on repeat.

I also want to take a moment to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Seasons Greetings, and a Happy New Year!
