Five for Friday - Merry Christmas

Posting this a day early, as most of us won't find the time tomorrow to visit or listen. I am off for a week, so I will take this opportunity to wish everyone a wonderful and happy Christmas, with all of God's blessings. Be well!

My playlist above contains five of my all-time favourite Christmas songs. They are attached to memories that make me tear up with joy, but I also find the music incredibly lovely. I hope you enjoy.

Added to that, I decided to share a few uniquely Canadian songs with my friends here. Something about these bands makes me proud to claim them as ours. Maybe you know some of them, maybe not, but to me they are part of what makes our country great.

Great Big Sea - The Mummers Song

Crash Test Dummies - Jingle Bells (like no other!)

Gordon Lightfoot - Song for a Winter's Night

The Barra MacNeils - Christmas in Killarney

Roch Voisine - Petit Papa Noel

Sarah McLachlin - Mary Mary

and a wonderful version of Canada's oldest Christmas carol (singer unlisted) - Jesous Ahatonhia

Have a beautiful, joyful Christmas. May God visit your homes and grant you peace and happiness throughout the holiday season. Be well.
