the most wonderful sounds of the year.

Christmas music might be the best thing of ever. Regardless of the time of year, it makes me smile. To all the Grinches and people who think Christmas music should be heard solely during the holiday season, I say ‘no.’

Listening to Christmas music is like being naked under a Snuggie™ made of rainbows that was loomed by the delicate hands of gnomes while Care Bears serve you Sour Patch Kids and Shiner Bock. In case you needed help picturing that, here you go!

I detest the commercial qualities of Christmas, and it isn’t even my favorite holiday. (Thanksgiving is where it’s at, y’all.) But, the music is amazing. There are few things you can be doing that can’t be better with the addition of Christmas music. I mean, who hasn’t danced around their house in their underwear to “All I Want For Christmas Is You” while tidying up or folding laundry?! Who hasn’t almost driven off the road hitting the high note to “O Holy Night” while cruising down I35 with the radio on full blast?!

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it 1,000 times, you can only have 2 favorite Christmas songs (one religious/traditional and one secular.) What are mine? I’m glad you asked!

TRADITIONAL: “Do You Hear What I Hear?” By Carrie Underwood

SECULAR: “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” By Sarah MacLachlan (or pretty much any version).

If loving Christmas music this much is wrong, I don’t wanna be right. It is happiness musicified. (Wow. Spell-check did NOT like that one…) But it’s the truth. It’s the birth of the Baby Jesus, and I am crowning with excitement.

UPDATE: The Glee Cast's Christmas Album is ho-hum and probably not worth an entire purchase. HOWEVER, do buy the Lea Michele "O Holy Night." Tis amazing, and on top of that she does the 2nd verse that so many people overlook when they record it. :)
