Happy Christmas Eve, everyone!
I absolutely cannot believe that tomorrow is Christmas! Where did this year go?
I feel like my Christmas tree hasn't been up for that long (but really it's been a month) and I'm not ready to see it go.
I'm going to read Dicken's A Christmas Carol today, continue my Advent study (I'm sad to see that go as well!), do some baking, drink some hot chocolate, and of course, watch Christmas movies!
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas as you spend time with friends and family.
You guys make this place so much fun and I'm happy to celebrate with you all.
Now, I leave you with my Top Ten Favorite Christmas Songs!
10. 12 Days of Christmas by Straight No Chaser This is one of those Christmas songs that you either love or hate. And it usually ends up being one that people redo and just have fun with. This is my most favorite version, by far!
9. White Christmas by Ben Rector White Christmas and Let It Snow are pretty much on the same level to me. Ben Rector has a version of each and they are both amazing.
8. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas by Relient K I mean, it's Relient K. They are amazing. They did a whole album that is nothing but covers. :)
7. Joy To The World by Andrew Ripp This won't be the only appearance that Andrew makes on this list. He has a Christmas EP that is just fun to listen to. Also on the album is the song Peace Like A River, one of my favorite songs.
6. Snow Globe by Matt Wertz This is just one of those fun and non-traditional Christmas songs. Plus, Matt Wertz wears a red onsie for most the video. Funny. This is also the song set for my alarm in the mornings right now.
5. Come Let Us Adore Him by Hillsong One of the classics that we sing in honor of our King! Let us adore Him this Christmas!
4. Silent Night by Andrew Ripp AND Ben Rector I was only going to share Andrew's version, but then I saw this version that has both Ben and Andrew. Needless to say, I got excited and this duo is great together. (Andrew's solo version is below this one.)
3. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays by NSYNC I mean, we can't leave out NSYNC right?
2. Carol of the Bells by Sofree I love any version of this song really, it's just fun. Well, this performance I saw live! Sofree is an all girls ensemble from The University of Mobile. I had the opportunity to go to Christmas Spectacular this year and it was absolutely amazing. Everyone did a wonderful job.
1. O Holy Night by Hillsong This is by far my most favorite Christmas song! The lyrics in this song are just astounding and are filled with truth. I've included the version from Hillsong and the version from Christmas Spectacular from last year. That is one you MUST listen to. Chills, I tell ya. Chills.
Truly He taught us to love one another;
His law is love and His gospel is peace.
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother;
And in His name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy name.
Here is one I just wanted to included for fun!
Jimmy Fallon did a mash up of holiday tunes with Carrie Underwood and Rashida Jones!
Regardless that this was mostly for Thanksgiving, but there's a little Christmas in there too.
