I have quite a few favorite holiday songs, more than 5, but the ones I most love to just hum to and sing constantly would be.
Versions that are slow and almost haunting are the best!
Literally ANY version is amazing. I love this song so much! Some of my favorite renditions: Pentetonis, Trans Siberian Orchestra, John Williams’ version from Home Alone. I am sure there are others I’m forgetting.
It’s actually hard to find the version I like the most. Josh Groban’s is simply incredible, but the one I heard over and over as a kid by some guy I don’t remember the name of is definitely my favorite. I wish I could remember his name.
Because my grandma (who passed away over a decade ago) loved this song, and because my mom loved this song, and because I love songs that tell a story or describe a scene.
The scene descriptions! It makes me feel all fuzzy and warm and cheery!
What songs do you love to hear around Christmas? Do you have your own playlist?
