I am not talking about the horn honking from someone being cut off in the mall parking lot. I’m also not talking about the screaming from one driver at another because of the traffic. I’m talking about Christmas and other holiday music.
I am that person who would play Christmas music all year round but, to make my children happy, I try to limit the Christmas music to between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Okay, really until New Year’s. What they do not hear, though, is that I run to Christmas music from about October on.
My Christmas running playlist has three different versions of “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” on it.
David Hansen, whom I follow on Twitter (@rev_david), created an Advent playlist on YouTube. You can listen to it here.
I, also, find myself singing the songs from the musical Godspell this time of year. “Prepare ye the way of the Lord”
My taste in Christmas music runs the gambit from Trans Siberian Orchestra to Mannheim Steamroller to country stars to pop stars to classics.
One of my favorite songs is “Breath of Heaven.
Do you have a favorite Christmas song? When do you start playing Christmas music?
