I am a BIG fan of Christmas music, having amassed somewhere around 300 songs over the last 20 years. It all started when my family used to purchase the “Sounds of the Season” Album at Target each year (question: Do they make that anymore?) I loved seeing which mix of artists would be on the compilation.
After years and years of listening to Christmas Music, I’d like to share some of my favorite non-traditional songs (read: non-carols) for you to add to your collection.
