Sibling Tag!

I got to spend Christmas in Texas with my family. My siblings and I got together to film a video and answer a few questions about each other. Sorry for the poor video quality, it was late and dark but my sisters we’re leaving soon and we had to film then or never.

My Favorite Christmas Songs & Versions

It seems that everybody has a Christmas album these days.  If you’re favorite band or artist doesn’t have one yet I can bet that they will record one at some point in their career.  It makes sense.  The songs are already written so all you have to do is record it and its guaranteed to be a pretty good seller with your fans.  There are pros and cons to this.  The downside is you are going to hear the same songs over and over all month.  The positive side is that there has to be at least one version of every song that you’ll like (unless you are a Scrooge).  This is a list of my favorite Christmas songs and the version of that song that I prefer most.

Frosty the Snowman by Michael Bublé

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen by Relient K

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town by Justin Bieber

Holly Jolly Christmas by Burl Ives

O Holy Night by Carrie Underwood

So what are some of your favorite songs?  Share them in the comments so we can listen to them!

Christmas Time Is Here

I haven’t posted in a while because I’ve been with my family in south Texas for the Thanksgiving holiday.  I thought about posting some things about being thankful and blessed or the horrors of Black Friday but instead decided to just fully invest in my time there.

Now that I’m back and it’s December it is time to focus on Christmas and all the joy that it brings.  I absolutely love Christmas time!  The decorations, trees, lights, cookies, music, movies and of course the real reason for the season (Jesus) so I’m sure I’ll be posting about a lot of stuff this month.

First up I have an album streaming below that you should check out.  It’s called Advent to Christmas by the band Page CXVI.  They are a band based out of Colorado who mainly cover hymns and I’ve been anticipating their Christmas album for quite some time now!  Give it a listen here and if you like it go buy it on iTunes or from their website.
