Christmas Carols

December Eve Blog Party

     It’s beginning to sound a lot like Christmas. Or, at least it’s about to! Welcome to the December Eve blog party, my friends! This blog event is being hosted by Lillian Keith, and she kindly invited me to attend, which means, you’re invited too. The party is actually in two parts, as there will be a follow-up blog post tomorrow (stay tuned because that may be the one I’m the most excited about). 

     So, here’s the lineup for today. I’m going to share 3 categories: Classic Carols, Christmas Instrumental, and Curl Up By the Fire. In each category, I will give you 4 or 5 links to Christmas music. Let’s get on to enjoying the music!

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6

1. Classic Carols

 Joy to the World/Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee    

     This is a great one to start with! We have this CD, and this is the first song on it, so it just shouts the Christmas season to me. The whole CD is beautiful!

Silent Night

     Silent Night – one of the most peaceful, calming Christmas carols there is. 

Angels We Have Heard on High

O Holy Night

     One of my favorite Christmas carols sung by one of my favorite vocalists. I hope you love this version of O Holy Night! The whole CD is good.


2. Christmas Instrumental

Relaxing Christmas Carols

    Can’t get enough of Christmas music? Here’s a track that you can put on and play in the background for three hours.

Christmas Eve Guitar Music

     Here’s a track with peaceful guitar music that would make a great background for your Christmas season! 

The Birthday of a King

     This song is special because I am friends with the musicians. Their family does beautiful bell music together, and there are more of their songs on the channel.

Carol of the Bells

3. Curl Up By the Fire

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

     Here’s a playful song to start out with! Not only is the music festive and fun, but the family also recorded it in the snow. 

What Child is This

     Don’t music boxes just have a Christmassy sound to them? Here’s a tinkly, cozy version of What Child is This. Wind it up and let the song play as you sit by the fire.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas

O Come, O Come Emmanuel/God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

     Here’s where my Scottish heritage pokes its head out. But, isn’t this haunting version of O Come, O Come Emmanuel simply beautiful? 

Instrumental Fireside Music

     It doesn’t get much more fireside than this. These Christmas carols have the sound of a fireplace crackling mixed in with them. So, even if you don’t have a real fireplace, you can capture some of the cozy vibes wherever you are.

     Ready to continue on with this party? Check out Lillian Keith’s blog where she links to the other bloggers participating. I’ll be heading over with you to see if I can find any more Christmas songs to listen to this season!

     What are some of your favorite Christmas carols?

     Until next time, find some Christmas music to listen to, and sing praise to our God!

In Christ,

  1. This was such a great list, Bethany! I didn’t realize you had Scottish ancestry. Those bagpipes are beautiful. Lol, and I enjoyed the video of It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year (that young kid on the end was adorable and really getting into it XD)

    1. Thank you, Lily! And, thank you so much for inviting me to participate in this event! Yes, I’m probably more Scottish than anything, and the music is in my blood. 🙂 That video is so fun, isn’t it? They were really enjoying the snow since they live in Florida and don’t see snow all the time. I can relate as a Texan!
