Christmas is in the air and no matter where you go, the sounds of holiday music aren’t far behind. Still, the songs I hear seem to be the same twenty songs repeating incessantly through the speakers of my radio. Each year, as the weeks go on, and I get sick of the repetitiveness of the season, I go back to a few of my favorite holiday songs.
For this week’s Music Monday, I couldn’t help but celebrate those holiday songs that bring each Christmas season to life for me. They aren’t the typical tunes heard each year, but they are always the ones I gravitate towards. There’s something special about each one. I hope you enjoy them, and have a wonderful holiday, no matter where in the world you are, or what you are celebrating.
