The 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway ~ On the Fifth Day

Music plays such an important part in the holidays.  I can hardly wait until Thanksgiving arrives so I can listen to my Christmas music.  We have it playing practically all the time during this season.

My very favorites are O Come, O Come Emanuel and the Carol of the Bells.

On the fifth day of Christmas...

It Came Upon a Midnight Clear

O Christmas Tree
Carol of the Bells
God Rest Ye Very Gentlemen
We Wish You a Merry Christmas
Let It Snow
O Come, All Ye Faithful

Do you have a favorite Christmas carol or song?
