Christmas music begins playing at our house about two seconds after October ends. Now I’m no Scrooge about it, but if our iPod is going to be burning up the holiday playlists for a couple months, I like to add some new music to the mix. So about two seconds after October ends, I excitedly begin to look for newly released albums or older ones that I haven’t come across in previous searches. As Advent means “coming”, the best holiday music not only helps you celebrate Christ’s birth, but helps you anticipate Christ’s return as well. I hope these albums both lead you and your families into greater joy that God sent His Son to save His people from their sins and builds your expectation for His coming again. For one day, Jesus will put death’s dark shadows to flight once and for all!
