Favorite Christmas Tunes

angel_lute.jpg“Mary did you know that your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?  Mary did you know that your baby boy will calm the storm with his hand? Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod? When you kiss your little baby you’ve kissed the face of God.”

So many wonderful Christmas songs to choose from.  I have about fifty on my MP3 playlist.  Here’s a  sample, a list of great tunes to help you pass the time on that long drive to your loved ones’ homes, wrapping packages, cooking, or anything else.  Some of pop, others are not, but they all fill me with joy and remind me of special times past and hopes for special times to come.
