FIVE SLEEPS ‘TIL CHRISTMAS!! Last week we shared a big playlist of Cheese-Free Christmas Music, featuring all sorts of contemporary and fun music to play during the holidays. If you haven’t yet, you can check it out here!
Now that Christmas is just around the corner, I’ve created a second Christmas playlist. While I love listening to some upbeat and fun Christmas music while doing my holiday baking, when Christmas finally arrives, I personally like to switch to more quiet, reflective Christmas music.
For me, my faith is central to the way I celebrate Christmas, and (unsurprisingly) music is a big part of the experience. I love the timelessness of Christmas hymns. While you’ll definitely catch me singing along about mistletoe and trimming the tree, when it gets to Christmas Eve, Christmas hymns are a must for me – they help turn off the mental busy-ness of presents and things to do and places to be, and bring the focus back to the hope that Christmas brings.
Here are ten of my favourite Christmas hymns, perfect for a quiet Christmas evening. Enjoy!
