We each have our favorite Christmas songs. You know the ones. The song that reminds you of a special someone. Or a funny memory that makes you giggle each time you hear it on the radio. Or the song the whole family knows all the words to. Or the one from your favorite holiday movie that never fails to warm your heart. Or the song that fills you with Christmas spirit in the early days of December. Or the one that makes you wistful for simpler days and an old-fashioned Christmastime.

I’m feeling warm and fuzzy just thinking about it. 🙂 Even if the same song is done by different artists, there’s usually one version that speaks to you more than the others.

See below for my favorite Christmas songs; they have a permanent spot of my Xmas playlist. It was very very difficult to keep it to 20. In fact, my title started out as a top ten list…lol
