Thursday 13: Thirteen Christmas songs to share

Quite Christmasy around here, finally! This week I'm sharing music, Christmas-style! Here are some of my favorite Christmas songs/videos. (I have hundreds of holiday songs on my iPod, so I have a LOT of favorites.)

A few of these are new (Paul Simon, just this year!), a number of them have been on my favorites list for a few years... I'm not sharing very many "classics" (which I also love), but I figured you'd already know THOSE.

Happy listening!

1. Sarah McLachlan: Wintersong

2. Paul Simon: Getting Ready for Christmas Day

3. YoYo Ma and Alison Krauss: The Wexford Carol

4. Alison Krauss: Only You Can Bring Me Cheer

5. The Florin Street Band: My Favourite Time of Year

6. Boney M: Mary's Boy (a little retro action!)

7. Straight No Chaser: 12 Days of Christmas

8. Weepies: All That I Want

9. Butterfly Boucher and Friends: Cinnamon and Chocolate

10. Rascal Flatts: I'll Be Home For Christmas

11. Coldplay: Christmas Lights

12. Glee Cast: Merry Christmas Darling

13. NOTA: All I Want For Christmas Is You

I can't help but include one of my favorite little Christmas moments, from Charlie Brown's Christmas: Linus' speech about the true meaning of Christmas. Priceless.

Wishing you joy and peace, goodwill toward men, now and throughout 2011.
