10 Christmas Songs To Listen To This Holiday Season


Another way I enjoy getting in to the Christmas spirit is listening to Christmas music after Decemeber 1st rolls around. I am going to share ten different Christmas songs in no perticular order from one to ten. A list looks better when it is numbered. Many of these songs I do not know how orginal wrote them or the year. I am sharing ones you can easily look up on Youtube to hear some of my favorite singers.

10 Christmas Songs To Listen To This Holiday Season

1. "Santa Clause Is Coming To Town", this is a song I have heard all my life. It reminds me of children Christmases. You better watch Santa Clause is checking his list. he is checking it twice.

2. "I'll Be Home For Christmas" By Twisted Sister, featuring Lita Ford. Many people, not just band members are out traveling during the Christmas seasons. Such as our young men and women in our armed forces.

3. "The Little Drummer Boy" sung by Bob Seger is about a little poor who has nothing to offer for Christmas to the new born King except playing a song on his drum. A song that proves you don't have to spend money to give something from yourself to someone else for Christmas.

4. "Silent Night" by Stevie Nicks. I have alwasy enjoy listening to her beautiful voice. I really don't know what this song is all about except sleep. It has always brought tears to me eyes. If you know please explain it to me.

5. "My Decemeber" By Linkin Park. This song is an apolgy and someoen not wanting to be alone. They realize holidays are better spent with others, than alone. If you are not talking to a loved one or friend, Christmas time is the perfect time to make amends without placing blame on who is right or wrong.

6. "So This Is Christmas" sung by Celine Dion is about Christmas a day where families come together to celebrate. No matter if they are poor or rich, or the color of the skin doesn't matter.

7. "Jingle Bell Rock". I had to share this song to liven up my spirit. As I was to get up and move around. dance or start baking my little ol head off.

8. "Run Rudolph Run" by Chuck Berry. This is another song that gets me moving and in the Christmas spirit. When I feel like I am pressed for time during the Christmas season. I listen to this and know I am not the only one.

9. "Carol Of Bells" by Metallica. This is an instrumental. You can tell it has Metallica's touch, any true fan would recongize their music. Even if a Christmas tune is put to it.

10. "Christmas In Hollis" sung by Run DMC. If you like 80's rap, here is a Christmas one to add to your list. 

I hope you like my selections. As these ten songs doesn't begin to put a dent in all the different Christmas songs. Nor sung by various singers. I hope they help you get you in to the Christmas spirit.

10 Christmas Movies To Put You In The Christmas Spirit


Getting in the Christmas spirit I am going to share some of my favorite Christmas movies. I will number them from 1 to 10. yet, they will be in no perticular order of how much I like them.

10 Favorite Christmas Movies

1. "It's A Wonderful Life" is an American Christmas drama made in the 1940's. First time I viewed it was in black and white. Til this day it is one movie I must see each Christmas. As I love Christmas miracles.

2. "Elf" is a comedy released in 2003. If you like Will Ferrell, you are sure to laugh in the epic journey of a hald elf/ half human searching for his father.

3. "The Nightmare Before Christmas", it took me a really long to actually watch this movie. As it tends to be on the darker side of Christmas stories. I can honestly say it is one of my favorite Christmas movies. I wish I had not waited so long to see it. If you haven't watched it yet. I suggest you do. 

4. "Home Alone (1 -3)", who can forget a kid left behind on Christmas by his family. Robbers try to rob his place while he puts up all kinds of traps. All the while his mother tries to get back to and stuck at an airport. 

5. "Jingle All The Way" is a comdey stariing Arnold Swazenager, as a dad trying to buy his son one toy. All stores he goes to is sold out.  Does he get the toy? Who knows. You will have to watch the movie to see how it turns out. Be prepare with a bag of popcorn to munch on with a stomach full of laughs.

6. "Gremlins" is a 1984 comedy horror flick. What is a gremlin? Well, it is a creature that is not very nice. It gets created out of another cute little creature if three rules are broken. 1. Never feed after midnight. 2. Never get wet. You will have to watch it to find out what happens if number 3 is broken.

7. "Earnest Saves Christmas", When Santa passes on his magical bags of gifts, some how earnest was choosen. The antics he pulls to save Christmas will have you laughing for years to come. 

8. "Rudolph The Rednose Reindeer", the Christmas season can't pass without watching a movie with Santa's bravest reindeer. Ruldolph starts off being bullied by all the other reindeers as they laugh and call himnames. To turn out to be Santa's only hope to lead Santa's sleigh to deliver all the gifts to sleeping boys and girls. 

9. "The Santa Clause (1 - 3)", Tim Allen plays in this comedy. As he sees the real santa fall of his house and dies. He picks up the suit when Santa disappears. Little by little he turns in to Santa Clause. This is a funny comedy that lasts for three movies.

10. "How The Grinch Stole Christmas", this is a comedy made over a couple of times. Each time the Grinch steals Christmas. As he hates Christmas. You learn why he does. You also learn all it takes is one little girl to help him grow his heart  many sizes.
