It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And the most wonderful time of the year comes with some of the best music. As I do every year, I like to share some of the music that I’ve been listening to throughout the season. If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile you’ll recognize some of the faves that pop up year after year, but you’ll also see some new songs on this list. As always, I start with Harry Connick Jr.’s Sleigh Ride, because that’s the first Christmas song I listen to each year. That entire album, actually. And my Christmas playlists always end with my favorite version of Auld Lang Syne by Pink Martini. You’ll hear, once again, a couple of songs from Mahalia Jackson, which always make me stop what I’m doing to sit back and listen. And you’ll hear some new songs, including a new version of one of my favorite hymns Come Thou Long Expected Jesus. I hope you enjoy the playlist!
