Christmas Songs to Get You in the Christmas Mood
Nothing puts me in the Christmas spirit, or a festive mood, quicker than listening to Christmas music. There are so many wonderful Christmas songs performed by a variety of talented artists. There are traditional carols as well as modern songs that are non-religious and centered around a celebration theme.
I thought it would be fun to assemble all my Christmas favorites and share them with you just in case you're wanting to get into the Christmas spirit.
When I sat down to begin this project, this list was going to include my top ten Christmas songs. I knew I'd be able to easily come up with ten.
I soon realized I couldn't limit it to just ten.
So, I decided to make it my top twenty list of favorite Christmas songs.
I found I couldn't do that either. There are just too many songs that I like and Christmas wouldn't be the same without hearing them at least once.
So, here is KCC's top 20+ Christmas songs.
