Santa Baby Blog Hop

SantababybloghopGood morning everyone

I’m participating in the Santa Baby Blog Hop, so be sure to look for the line from the song then use the link at the bottom of the post to check out other authors posts.

For some reason (I don’t know why) there’s been a lot of talk about Christmas Carols lately. My friend was telling me that she has a very definite viewpoint on what makes a Christmas Carol, one that excludes songs like The Christmas Shoes . A radio personality stated that since Mariah Carey’s All I want for Christmas is You there hasn’t been a new Christmas Carol added to the pantheon.

I think they’re both nuts.

TheChristmasShipEvery year, I find a new Christmas song to add to my holiday play list. As for what constitutes a Christmas Carol, I think it is anything that puts you in a holiday mood, because if Die Hard can be the most popular Christmas movie ever, then I can make up my own rules, too.

So, if you’re looking for some new-to-you Carols to add a little cheer to your holiday, here are a few that I rarely hear but love, by the artists that first introduced them to me:

Mary’s Boy Child

Baby, It’s Cold Outside Not a new song but I hadn’t heard it until Elf then this version came over the radio

Mary Did you Know? Enjoying a resurgence thanks to Pentatonix

Where are you Christmas? From the Grinch remake

Christmas Canon

Text Me Merry Christmas—Which is soon to be my favorite newbie.

To be entered into a drawing for a copy of either A Gift from St. Nick or The Christmas AGiftfromStNickShip, leave the youtube link to your favorite Christmas Carol.

    Here’s the link to a fab video of Christmas music.

  2. I think I tend to be sort of traditional in which Christmas songs I tend to like the best, but at the same time, if it’s being played around Christmas time it works for me! Here is the link to the song that has been my favorite (and my favorite version of the song) since, well, as far back as I can remember.

    Thank you for the chance to enter the giveaway and also thank you for listing a few songs for me to add to my Christmas playlist 😀

    Merry Christmas to you and yours, and to anyone who might read this, and a very Happy New Year!

    My favorite new Christmas carol is PTX Mary Did You Know. I have listened to it continuously since it came out. I also loved their version of Silent Night.
