My Top Five Christmas Albums

5. Joy to The World ~ Pink Martini

Pink Martini has unique music, blending different international styles and languages. Their holiday album is no exception! 

4. Let It Snow Baby... Let It Reindeer ~ Relient K

I love Relient K for their brilliant mix of humorous and meaningful songs. "Santa Claus is Thumbing to Town" has me laughing hysterically, while "I Celebrate the Day" had me tearing up this week and might be the best Christmas song ever. 

3. Christmas ~ Anna Gilbert
This is a newer album, but it's quickly made it into my favorites. It's full of beautiful, worshipful piano versions of carols. She has some originals and less popular songs. I'm in love with "Some Children" and "Rest in the Light". They make it onto my playlists year-round. (Not to mention that cover photo is beautiful.)

2. A Charlie Brown Christmas ~ Vince Guaraldi Trio

It just doesn't get much better than Charlie Brown Christmas. The jazz music is so relaxing and so Christmasy.

1. Home for Christmas ~ Amy Grant
Amy Grant's 90's album wins for the perfect balance of songs about Jesus, celebratory songs, and nostalgia. 

A few runners-up (runner-ups?....I'm always confused/annoyed about which is right) who also have great Christmas music are Michael Buble, Aly & AJ, (way better than their other CDs, in my opinion) BarlowGirl, Glee, and Jump5. (Must be nostalgia, but I still love their first Christmas CD. #sorrynotsorry)
