Musical Mondays: Christmas in July!

I love Christmas music.

I'm one of those weird people who gets so excited when a certain local radio station starts playing Christmas music around or before Halloween.

I wish I could pick one favorite Christmas song. We had this discussion with some friends last December. I really cannot choose just one. It really depends on the genre we're talking about.

There are certain carols I love (Silent Night, O Come O Come Emmanuel).

More modern holiday songs (White Christmas, It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas).

Fun Christmas songs (All I Want for Christmas is You, I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas)

Other modern Christian Christmas songs (Here With Us, Breath of Heaven).

And even songs [traditionally] without words (Carol of the Bells, Coventry Carol).

Oh and the one we kind of made up in our praise band a couple years ago, taking the words of It Came Upon a Midnight Clear and putting it to the music of Fernando Ortega's Our Great God...

What about you? Are you able to narrow down your list of favorite Christmas songs to just one or two?
