Hi there! Today I would like to share some of my favorite holiday music. These are the songs that truly make me feel like Christmastime is here. Speaking of which...
Of course, the classic Bruce Springsteen version of 'Santa Claus is Comin' to Town' had to make my list. In fact, this is the song that officially kicks off the holiday season, as far as I'm concerned. I don't consider it to really be Christmastime until I hear this one! This song always reminds me of my dad-- every year, my brother and I would pile into his station wagon and around looking for the best Christmas lights. My dad would turn on the radio and we'd bop along with all of our holiday favorites while ooooh-ing and ahhhh-ing over the elaborate displays (and concocting stories for if we were caught slowly driving up and down private roads!). Sometimes our mom was with us, and sometimes she was 'too busy wrapping presents for the cousins.' We fell for that line for years, and somehow, we never suspected that she was, in fact, wrapping our Christmas presents. Even when my dad would go check if we could come inside yet. Zach, why didn't we think anything about that was suspicious?!
I hope all of your holiday preparations are going well! Mine have been put off a little bit by a poorly timed bout of strep, and the only festive thing I feel up to is wearing Christmas pajamas. Womp wommmmp. Luckily I made it to the doctor early enough that I should be completely fine by The Big Day! Yay!
I'm always on the lookout for more Christmas music-- what are some of your favorites?
