Are you sick of hearing Christmas music yet? Want to know a secret? I don't think I could ever get tired of hearing my favorite Christmas carols.
I just love Christmas music. Below I've compiled a list of my favorite holiday songs for your listening pleasure.
I could write a book on how much I love O Holy Night. It is my absolute favorite Christmas song. Just take a look at these lyrics.
and my favorite part
"Truly He taught us to love one another, His law is love and His gospel is peace. Chains He shall break for the slave is our brother. And in His name all oppression shall cease."
Just thinking of those lines give me chills.
O Holy Night really captures everything I love about Christmas; the birth of Christ, His purpose for coming here, and the reverence of that night.
One of my favorite versions is done by The David Crowder*Band (link above). They end the song with the chorus of "Hallelujah", which is a song I'm not usually crazy about, but ever since hearing Cloverton's cover, I can't get it off my mind.
Usually, I'm thumbing my way through my Christmas Pandora station, but I can put these albums on and listen to them all the way through. My favorite Christmas albums:

In other news, my parents bought new a new front door, and I'm absolutely in love with it. (You can read how I feel about my front door here.) I love how the tree is standing back there all majestically. Sometimes, it's the little things.
Micah and I also had the opportunity to once again be apart of the church's Christmas parade float. How happy do I look here?
