    Top 10 Christmas Albums You’ve Got to Check Out!

    Ladies, it’s easy to build up a collection of Christmas albums, especially if you’re huge fan of Christmas music like I am!

    Well, if you have to narrow it down, consider the following 10 albums as part of your collection. This selection offers a variety of genres, gets you in the spirit and keeps you focused on the true meaning of Christmas! Check them out and tell us which is your favorite!

    1. TobyMac – TobyMac’s Christmas album, Christmas in Diverse City, offers many of the traditional songs, such as “The First Noel,” “O Come All Ye Faithful” and “Little Drummer Boy,” but with a twist. From reggae to hip-hop, this Christmas album lives up to its name, diverse! And it features artists like Jamie Grace and Nirva Ready.

    “Carol of the Kings” (feat. Gabe Real & Liquid) (Christmas in Diverse City, released 2011)

    2. Celine Dion – For the taste of the traditional, Celine Dion should definitely make the cut in your collection of Christmas favorites. Her album These Are Special Times features my most favorite rendition of “O Holy Night.”

    “O Holy Night” (These Are Special Times, released 1998)

    3. Andrea Bocelli – For a classical touch to your Christmas selection, Bocelli is a must. His voice is amazing!

    “What Child Is This” (My Christmas, released 2009)

    4. Matthew West – From the traditional songs to some of his own, Matthew West’s album offers a beautiful selection for Christmas. Some of my favorites are “Leaving Heaven” with Vince Gill and “One Last Christmas.”

    “The Heart of Christmas” (The Heart of Christmas, released 2011)

    5. Casting Crowns – Casting Crowns’ Christmas CD is definitely one you should add to your collection. Its contemporary sound offers beautiful renditions of Christmas classics.

    “While You Were Sleeping” (Peace on Earth, released 2008)

    6. Third Day – Winner of a Dove Award in 2007 for album of the year, Third Day’s Christmas album offers beautiful renditions of traditional songs, as well as a couple of originals.

    “Away in a Manger” (Christmas Offerings, released 2006)

    7. Trans-Siberian Orchestra – Christmas would not be Christmas without the Trans-Siberian Orchestra playing in the background! Okay, so it would still be Christmas without it, but it certainly certainly puts you in the mood for the season.

    “Christmas Canon” (The Christmas Attic, released 1998)

    8. Josh Groban – Another must-have for any Christmas collection! Groban has such a beautiful and powerful voice. And, of course, his song “Believe” from the movie The Polar Express is a classic.

    “What Child is This” (Noel, released 2007)

    9. MercyMe – Take your traditional Christmas favorites and add a MercyMe twist, and you have an awesome Christmas album!

    “Joseph’s Lullaby” (The Christmas Sessions, released 2005)

    10. Kutless – I love this Christmas album by Kutless. With songs like “Breath of Heaven” and “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear,” the Kutless sound adds a little rock to traditional favorites.

    “Mary Did You Know” (This is Christmas, released 2011)

    Ladies, which was your favorite Christmas song? Do you have any of these albums? Can you recommend others?

    1. I own a copy of the Kutless CD, and pretty much adore it.
      My favorite of these, though, has to be Matthew West’s album. I don’t own it, but I’ve listened to it on Youtube many times.
      Has anyone else seen the movie The Heart Of Christmas? It’s based off of the same story as the song One Last Christmas, and West even has a cameo in it. Oh, and his song is played in it, too.

      Happy new year, girlies!
