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.
1. Classic Carols
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 – one of the most peaceful, calming Christmas carols there is.
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
Can’t get enough of Christmas music? Here’s a track that you can put on and play in the background for three hours.
Here’s a track with peaceful guitar music that would make a great background for your Christmas season!
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.
3. Curl Up By the Fire
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.
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.
Here’s where my Scottish heritage pokes its head out. But, isn’t this haunting version of O Come, O Come Emmanuel simply beautiful?
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!
