Still Dont Have Internet

I still dont have internet, so for a brief break, here is a brilliant Christmas Mix. In addition to this mix, I highly recommend a couple complete Christmas CD's. Michael W. Smith's "Christmastime", Amy Grant "Home for Christmas", Andrew Peterson's "Behold the Lamb of God", and MercyMe "The Christmas Sessions" and Over the Rhines "The Darkest Night of the Year" are at the top of my list. What am I missing here... fill me in in the comment section. I know I left some classics out... tell me what HAD to be included that I didnt.

1. All I Want for Christmas Is You - Mariah Carey
2. Winter Wonderland/White Christmas - Mercy Me
3. Angels We Have Heard on High - Relient K
4. Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24) - Trans-Siberian Orchestra
5. Silent Night - MercyMe
6. Christmastime - Michael W. Smith
7. I Celebrate the Day - Relient K
8. Emmanuel - Amy Grant
9. It Came Upon a Midnight Clear - MercyMe
10. Christmas Canon Rock - Trans-Siberian Orchestra
11. All Is Well - Michael W. Smith
12. Labor of Love - Andrew Peterson
13. Rocking Around the Christmas Tree - MercyMe
14. O Holy Night - David Phelps (amazing version, trust me)
15. Behold the Lamb of God - Andrew Peterson
16. Theme of My Song - Andrew Peterson (the two go together)
17. I Heard the Bells - MercyMe
18. Silent Night (duet) - Over The Rhine
19. The Night Before Christmas - Amy Grant
20. Mary Did You Know - Clay Aiken

I think Amos could contribute a grievously missed song on your list...

It's a little tune by Lou Monte called "Dominick the Donkey" also commonly known as "The Italian Christmas Donkey"

It's a bit irritating at first, but then it grows on you. After four years of hearing it at university, it is has now become a much beloved Christmas song.

The Italian Christmas Donkey eh? Sounds quite interesting.

David Phelps O Holy Night is a winner for sure! Wish I had it with me here! Merry Christmas friend! I am thinking and praying for you and all the missionaries worldwide who will be spending Christmas away from home--may it be particularly blessed for all!

What no mention of *NSYNC Christmas?! Are you crazy or just embarrassed to tell everyone you love their album. Or maybe you just slipped into a case of amnesia, but how could you while I am playing them 24/7 right across the hall?

You are a good man Chris Rule...just don't forget about the best christmas album ever.

Yeah, I definitely have to second the *Nsync Christmas. That's a must. But also, you should try to find Copeland's version of "Do You Hear What I Hear?". It's one of my favorties, and I feel like it would be right up your musical alley.

Merry Christmas, friend!
