As new parents, it’s hard to find a regular babysitter and go out for date nights (like we used to). So we’ve had to use our creativity to find fun things to do on Friday evenings after Allie goes to bed.

our Christmas Playlist (Top 16 Songs)For date night this past Friday, Olive and I went shopping… online shopping. One of the things I look forward to in December is listening to Christmas music. So we loaded up an iTunes gift card and previewed dozens of songs. It was an enjoyable evening and now we’re excited to listen to our new purchases.

To celebrate the start of December (and also the start of Advent), we decided to share our Christmas playlist with you. These are the 16 top Christmas songs we’re listening to right now:

Christmas Dream – Theo Tams
Come Now Our King – Chris August
Emmanuel (Hallowed Manger Ground) – Chris Tomlin
Feliz Navidad – David Crowder Band
Gloria – Mercy Me
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen – Bethany Dillon
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas – Christina Aguilera
I Need a Silent Night – Amy Grant
I’ll Be Home for Christmas – Jaci Velasquez

    My all time favourite Christmas cd is John Michael Talbot’s The Birth of Jesus: Celebration. Steve Bell’s 1st Advent album, A Feast of Seasons is lovely, and his recently released 2nd Advent album, Keening for the Dawn, is also lovely.

    • Thanks for sharing these Laurel. We’re definitely going to check them out!
