12 Days of Christmas: 6

Its only the 6th of December but it feels like this month is flying—anyone else feel that way?

Just a quick reminder—this Friday starts our Recap Extravaganza!! If you are new here or need a refresher, you can click HERE for more info!

DAY 6:  I’m Singing, Oh yes I’m Singing!

I think we all have a song or two that we hear at Christmas time and it brings back memories or helps the spirit of the season feel more real.   So I was thinking I might list my top 5 Holiday songs.  I say Holiday because I am not sure that all of them would really be Christmas music…. more so seasonal I guess. 

#1 MY FAVORITE:  ‘All I want for Christmas is You’ by Mariah Carey.. this one also reminds me of one of my favorite movies of the season.. can you guess which one?

#2: Baby Its Cold Outside… I actually like the version from the movie Elf.. yeah, I said it.  hah.

#3:  Silent Night… especially love it when you are at church and they turn out all the lights and everyone is holding a candle singing.

#4 O Holy Night.. there’s just something moving about this song

#5 Drummer Boy… when I was a little pipsqueek, this was a favorite because I loved saying ‘pa rum pum pum pum’

Wow - your #3 song choice? Exactly the same reason I love Silent Night. One of our talented church members plays it on his guitar at the end of the service on Christmas Eve. They turn off the lights and everyone gets a candle. It's pure magic...

And I'm drawing a blank on what movie Mariah's "All I Want for Christmas" is from... but I AM digging the Mariah/Bieber version on the Bieb's Christmas album!!

I'll be linking up with ya'll this Friday! I haven't done my post yet, but I'll be there! :o)

If you like Zooey's voice in ELF, you'll love She & Him. She's half the duo in that group and they have a Christmas album!!!

I love your # 1 song. I played that off you tube this morning and all of the sudden I heard Justin Beiber singing. Apparently Mariah and Justin did a duet. That's not my version of choice, but I'm sure my girls will love it!

And I also think "Oh Holy Night" is so moving and beautiful.

Little Drummer Boy is my #1 favorite. I love hearing old Christmas songs by Bing Crosby, it brings back memories from when I was little. My mom would play her Christmas records and that was my favorite one.

Great choices!! Silent Night has definitely always been a favorite of mine. I also like "I'm dreaming of a White Christmas"-- though ironically I don't like snow anymore :)

i'm not a big fan of Christmas music (don't hate me) BUT I caught myself singing along while I was out shopping this weekend. That was a first for me. Maybe I'm growing out of my dislike for Christmas music!

Thanks for linking up with us my friend! xoxo

I love love Baby It's Cold Outside. I have a friend that agrues that it's not a Christmas song. (He's wrong!!!) I also love the Elf version.** I like smiling. Smilings my favorite.

Okay sorry about that. Silent Night is a great song but my all time favorite Christmas song I want a hippopotamus for Christmas. I know that it's really silly but I can't help but smile when I hear it.

I'll Be Home for Christmas always makes me tear up for some reason. And Silent Night is my all time favorite.

All I want for Christmas is you is my number 1 favorite too. Probably the only Mariah Carey song I actually like. haha. She gets on my nerves, but I love that song. :) Hmm.. what movie does that remind you of.. maybe the 90s movie 'All I want for Christmas' with the two little kids that try to get their parents back together? Such a cute movie. :)

Jen said...

I love these songs!! When I hear the Mariah song it reminds me of Love Actually...love that movie :)
Great song choices!

My family and friends know that it's not Christmas until Gene says so.

Gene who?

I knew you were going to ask.

Gene Autry of course.

Listening to Gene was something we did every year as a family while decorating the Christmas tree. When I was old enough I was thrilled to be able to pull that record, yes record, out of it's cardboard protector, set it on the turntable and then ever so gently lay the needle on the record.

My girls now share the same joy in this tradition, we love all things Christmas!

Thanks for linking up!
