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