Blogmas #2: Top 5 Christmas Playlist

#blogmas on The Bibliovert

Well, Christmas time is upon us whether we are ready for it or not.  It seems to have snuck up on me a bit this year.  Are you ready for the Holiday season?


Music has always been a part of my life, no matter the time of year, but especially during Christmas. As a kid I remember my Mom going to the piano, pulling out the sheet music from the piano bench and sitting down to play. At times I could be found next to her singing along. I specifically remember singing, “Do You Hear What I Hear?” Just thinking about it gives me all the feels.  

Is there a song that brings you back to your childhood and Christmases years ago?

Below I have listed five of my favorite traditional and nontraditional Christmas songs.  The traditional song list could have been a mile long. There are just so many good choices. The non-traditional list was a little bit harder to put together. The Christmas season wouldn’t be the same for me, without these songs.




Do You Hear What I Hear? Johnny Mathis

Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24), Trans-Siberian Orchestra

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, Andy Williams

A Holly Jolly Christmas, Burl Ives

Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree, Brenda Lee



I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas, Gayla Peeve

Grandma Got Runover By A Reindeer, Elmo and Patsy

Blue Christmas with Porky Pig

My Grown-Up Christmas, Kelly Clarkson

Mary Did You Know?, Pentatonix

What is your favorite Christmas and/or holiday songs?

  1. I love this post! Christmas music is some of the best music. I love putting the tunes on to get in the festive spirit. Some on your list I’ve never heard of before but I’m looking forward to checking them out. I think my favourite Christmas song would be Jingle Bells only because of how much everyone gets involved in it. Great post!


  2. I adore the mix of traditional and non-traditional. My favourite has to be Don’t let the Bells End by The Darkness reminds me of the christmas before my dad passed all 5 of us rocking out to it and its a bot quirky compared to all the other poppy types


    1. I will have to check into that album. I love both Kenny and Dolly! As for the GIFS…it is so much fun just looking through all of them. There are so many! I could spend the day just looking through GIFs….not the best use of time with things to get done. 🙂
