Y’all… I know I’m going overboard on the Christmas stuff but I just absolutely love this holiday so much and I’d totally be that crazy lady who leaves her Christmas tree up all year if I could get away with it. But, y’all, I can’t get away with it. I already start listening to the music in October each year and no I don’t subject it to those around me. I listen to regular music when I’m in the car with other people, etc. I just can’t get enough of everything surrounding this holiday.
So, today I’m going to list all my favorite versions of Christmas songs. As much as I like all the different groups and their different takes on the songs featured… these are my favorites.
