I am one who celebrates Christmas. Even though I didn’t necessary grew up with Christ or church in majority of my life. Whether you consider this season as just a Winter Solstice, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, or any other holiday that may fall in this very time of year, it should be a time of peace and love. Even though winter is NOT my favorite season, I do find joy during this time of year with the overdose of Christmas cookies, hot cocoa, soup, and especially holiday music. It makes up for the pain of the cold. Ever since my return from my tour in Iraq, I have started appreciating snow more, but not the cold. I don’t complain of course, because if I did fully hate the season, it would make more sense to just move somewhere warmer for me. There is just a beauty with the privilege to see nature change seasons though. That’s probably why I have stayed as long as I have in this well-known territory of cheese.
I should be Christmas shopping and looking for my favorite holiday cookie recipe, but I took a seat to share some of my favorite holiday tunes to get in the Merry fever! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I sometimes even find myself jamming to these songs in July! Ha! I even put a playlist together on my YouTube channel for those who want to listen to them non-stop or in a different order. I know the title says TOP TEN, but I added two extra bonus videos for you all to enjoy, because I am sneaky like that.
