my favorite christmas songs

One of my favorite parts of Christmas is the music. No matter what Christmas activity I'm participating in- decorating, baking cookies, shopping, writing cards- it is not complete without some festive music! Today I'm sharing my top 10 favorite Christmas songs, aside from hymns. As you'll see, I'm a sucker for the classics, but there's a couple of newer songs in there too!

one. "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas"- Frank Sinatra (I also love the original Judy Garland version)

two. "O Holy Night"- Josh Groban

three. "Cold December Night"- Michael Buble

four. "I'll Be Home For Christmas"- Bing Crosby

five. "White Christmas"- Bing Crosby

six. "The Christmas Song"- Andy Williams

seven. "Text Me Merry Christmas"- Straight No Chaser (feat. Kristen Bell)

eight. "The Holly and the Ivy"- Natalie Cole (I also love George Winston's instrumental version)

nine. "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays"- Pentatonix

ten. "(There's No Place Like) Home for the Holidays"- Perry Como
