While I know Thanksgiving has not even come, we’ve started listening to Christmas music! I hold off on decorating for Christmas until after Thanksgiving, but I love Christmas music and just can’t wait!
We are very conservative in our music choices, so the list below reflects that. Even on this list there might be a few songs within a CD I normally skip.
The Heart of Christmas Classical Guitar – I found this at the library and we have all been enjoying how peaceful and beautiful it is! This CD is a good one to play during school time, and will help cheer the children up during unpleasant subjects. Don’t ask me how I know. 😉
Heavenly Christmas by Jackie Evancho – I purchased this CD last year and love it! Her voice is amazing for being so young. I’ve shipped many packages for Deborah & Co. during the holidays while I listen to this for some holiday cheer. 🙂
Tidings of Joy by the John Marshall Family – I listened to this for many years before getting married, so whenever I hear it I remember baking days in the kitchen with my mom and decorating our house. It brings back such good memories! This family has an amazing talent of blending their voices and singing for the Lord!
A Family Christmas by the Piano Guys – This is one where I don’t like every song on the CD, and I can’t handle it on during the school time. 🙂 I really enjoy the talent of the Piano Guys, but when I have 5 other children making noise this CD is just too much. I enjoy listening to it at night while I’m blogging, or in the van with the children.
O Come Emmanuel by David Nevue – This is another nice quiet Christmas album that is full of solo piano music. This music is turned on often during school days. I really like all the music I have from David Nevue – very soothing for an active household!
Noel by Josh Groan – I skip a few songs on this album, but we enjoy most of them. Josh Groban has a beautiful voice!
I Wish You A Merry Christmas by Bing Crosby – I found this at the library and we have had some fun family time listening to it. We don’t do anything with Santa Claus and it is hard to find a good classic album without a lot of Santa Claus music included. This was a nice change from other CD’s I’ve tried, and we’re having fun singing along.
These are some of my favorite Christmas albums, I would love to know what your family enjoys at Christmas time!
