We enjoyed making our lists of the top ten songs of the year so much that we decided to make lists of our favorite Christmas songs, as well! Get ready to jingle your bells and deck your halls to our Christmas favorites!
1. "Mary, Did You Know?"
Pentatonix is perfect. That’s all I have to say. Just go listen to this and you will understand why it is my number one.
1. "Baby It's Cold Outside"
by Idina Menzel & Michael Bublé
This has always been my favorite Christmas song. The back and forth is incredible. And while a number of artists have done this song wonderfully, Idina’s is my favorite. You should definitely check out the music video while you’re at it; it’s incredible and I could watch it on repeat for ages.
1. "Linus and Lucy"
by Vince Guaraldi Trio
I own the A Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack and listen to it avidly around this time of year. It’s smooth jazz at its finest and most tolerable. I can’t explain my attachment to the soundtrack or this song in particular; perhaps it has been the annual re-watching of all of the Peanuts specials or the many visits to Cedar Point (where this song is shoved in your ear holes at every turn) every summer that has concreted my appreciation.
