Have you worn out your favorite Christmas albums yet? This is the point in the season for me when the old standards start to feel a bit stale and we’re ready for something fresh, something new. And so I thought I would share a few of our favorites with you in the hope that you might find a new song or two to enjoy.
Our Favorite Christmas Albums
The Light Came Down, by Josh Garrels
Songs for Christmas, by Sufjan Stevens
Waiting Songs, by Rain for Roots
Family Christmas, by Slugs & Bugs

And while we don’t love every song on this last album, the ones we do love are excellent—perhaps our favorite versions of our favorite Christmas hymns. They’re perfect for epic Christmas kitchen dance parties:
Christmas Songs, by Bad Religion
On Another (Less Musical) Note
Did you know that the Christmas issue of Wildflowers is available? Also, Wildflowers now offers two different kinds of subscriptions, so whichever one you choose, you’ll find each season’s issue waiting for you in your mailbox. Huzzah!
In other news: I got to take a stab at illustrating for this issue, and it was so much fun, I’m coming back next year as a full-time illustrator!
