Christmas is here! I mean almost here! We are already into the spirit as our Christmas tree is up and we have started making kuswar (sweets) . But while doing all these, one enjoys listening to the traditional hymns and songs that bring in the vibe. Chances are that you have heard many or all of them and still feel like hearing them over and over again.
So here is the list of our favourites as a family…
Deck the halls
Decorate your home and be ready to welcome Jesus and many friends and family to celebarte with you.
Santa Claus is coming
This song needs no introduction. Sing it to your kids and ask them to be good so that they can get all they ask from Santa.
Joy to the world
It’s time to rejoice and celebrate the coming of our saviour Jesus Christ. Christians all over the world believe in the birth of Jesus and that he is a living God and celebrate his birthday as Christmas every year on the 25th of December.
The bells that ring and indicate that someone is on his way with a sleigh full of presents.
This hymn tells us the story of how heavenly and calm it felt the night that Baby Jesus was born.
Rudolph the reindeer
This song tells of how the red-nosed reindeer was chosen by Santa to lead his sleigh because of his red glowing nose.
12 days of Christmas
A tongue twisting song with such pep yet so enjoyable. Learn and sing this with your kids and you will have a blast.
Jingle bells rock
This is another of the classic songs with wonderful music written in 1956.
O come all ye faithful
This hymn calls everyone to celebrate and worship the coming of Jesus.
A Spanish-English song sung at the strike of midnight after the holy mass at every church ends and the atmosphere fills with the Christmas vibes.
My daughter Eira has recently explored the pop group Pentatonix and just can’t get over them. While me and my husband enjoy the traditional songs and also Celine Dion and Sixpence None The Richer. You will see a mix of them all here.
