Christmas has arrived. I don’t doubt you’re anticipating the return of favorite carols, cookies and movies. Over the course of December I’ll be posting a series of my favorites, just to get in the spirit of the season. Up first…

Best Modern Christmas Songs:

  • Santa Claus is Coming to Town- Ray Charles (Because who doesn’t love Ray Charles?)
  • All I Want for Christmas is You- Mariah Carey (Because as mentioned previously, it’s the ultimate shower singalong)
  • It Came Upon a Midnight Clear- Josh Groban (Because the song is absolutely 100% gorgeous. Seriously. Download it.)
  • Song for a Winters Night- Sarah MacLachlan (Because my roommates made me listen to this song nonstop over Christmas 2001 and I grew to love it.)
  • What Christmas Means to Me- Hanson (Because I’ve danced in a parking lot to this song with…well…you know who you are girls.)
  • New York Christmas- Rob Thomas (Because I’m reminded of my engagement four years ago)
  • Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas- Coldplay (Because in case you haven’t noticed this last year, I’m obsessed with them.)
  • Christmas All Over Again- Tom Petty (Because it was on the Home Alone soundtrack. See next week for more on my obsession with Home Alone.)

Next week: favorite Christmas movies
