[My next handful of posts are going to discuss my favorite parts of the holidays. Please feel free to comment or reply and post yours!]
There are two sides to Christmas and sometimes it’s very hard to balance them. There is the religious side and the secular side. On one side there’s baby Jesus, angels, and nativities; and on the other there is Santa Claus, snowmen, and twinkling lights. One of my favorite things about Christmas is music. However, when I sat down to write about my favorite Christmas songs, I realized there was no way to come up with just 5! I love the traditional hymns and ballads, but I also need a little fun and snow in my songs. So here are my 2 lists of favorite Christmas songs.
What are yours?
