Only one week until Christmas. WOW! So tell me. Do you have all of your decorating, shopping, wrapping, baking, and party planning done yet? Maybe the better question is do you still have all of your hair or has the stress of the season caused you to pull it all out?

OK, I know you would never get stressed. I’m talking to the other readers. You are the picture of holiday peace. Right?

Well, of course we all know it’s a busy time of year. And even we Christians are sometimes guilty of getting overly caught up in all the hustle and bustle. One thing that helps me to chill out after a particularly stressful day at the mall or party with my in-laws is to grab the headphones, lay on the couch, and listen to Christmas music. For a blissful few moments, the songs take me back to that beautiful Holy night 2,000 years ago when my Savior was born and allows me to focus on the real reason for the season.

So today’s question isn’t officially writing-related, but I would like to know which Christmas song touches your heart and warms your soul? Is it a classic Christmas carol? A more contemporary piece? A unique version of an old song?
