Playlist for the Holiday Season

Miss Kitty is getting festive
Well, in order for this playlist to last all the way through your family's annual decoration of the tree or through Christmas dinner, your happening Christmas party, or whatever, I figured more than the standard 20-song playlist here at Nine to Phive would be in order.

These songs have all been near and dear to me for one reason or another throughout my childhood Christmases. Many of these are faith-based Christmas songs because I believe that faith in the story of God's saving gift to us is what Christmas is all about. Don't worry, there are plenty of traditional favorites as well.

Sorry about the overabundance of Michael W. Smith and Amy Grant. Talk about a big part of my childhood. I couldn't stay away . . .
