Hello, friends! I’m still in full-on holiday mode over here! Last week I shared 100 of my favorite Christmas songs, I’m holding a peppermint mocha as I write this, and today I’m sharing 20 of my favorite Christmas albums. (Coming up in the next few weeks: my favorite songs and books of 2021!)

Let’s get to it! Here are my favorite Christmas albums of all time (so far 😊):

  1. Francesca Battistelli: Christmas. This one tops my list. I love the cheery sound!
  2. Mariah Carey: Merry Christmas. From the queen of Christmas herself. I adore this album just as much as everybody else seems to. 😊
  3. Francesca Battistelli: This Christmas. Ranks right up there with her first Christmas record for me!
  4. Michael W. Smith: The Spirit of Christmas. I’ll always love this album because I saw Michael W. Smith perform most of these songs live and his performance was incredible. There are tons of big names featured on this release, including Amy Grant. Nothing says Christmas like Michael W. Smith and Amy Grant, am I right?
  5. Leona Lewis: Christmas, With Love. As I’ve mentioned before, I think this is an underrated album. There’s a deluxe edition coming out later this month!
  6. Kelly Clarkson: When Christmas Comes Around. I can’t decide if I like this brand-new album or her first Christmas album better. Both are perfectly jolly.
  7. Kelly Clarkson: Wrapped in Red. I’ve listened to this one too many times to count. Just the right kind of songs to get me moving when I’m not feeling motivated.
  8. Céline Dion: These Are Special Times. It’s Céline Dion. How can it not be good? She gets extra points for singing in three different languages on one album.
  9. Michael W. Smith: It’s A Wonderful Christmas. I’m not really one to listen to orchestral music, but Michael W. Smith’s Christmas albums are the exception. Somehow just the sounds themselves carry such peace and hope!
  10. Meghan Trainor: A Very Trainor Christmas. I love her style. Such a happy album.
  11. Amy Grant: Home For Christmas. My mom played this one allllll the time when I was a kid (and she still does). These songs are cheerful and comforting.
  12. Michael Bublé: Christmas. His voice was made for classic Christmas tunes.
  13. Mariah Carey: Merry Christmas II You. An impressive follow-up to her original Christmas album.
  14. Michael W. Smith: Christmas. This one’s mainly on the list because of its cover art. 😉 Just kidding, but it is a Christmastime classic. Amy Grant’s on this one, too.
  15. Jump5: All The Joy In The World. The sound of my teen years. 😊 I hear songs from this album piping through store speakers all the time during the Christmas season!
  16. Glee Cast: Glee, The Music, The Christmas Album. Love the upbeat sound of all the Glee music!
  17. Pentatonix: The Best of Pentatonix Christmas. Pentatonix is so talented (There’s a reason they won a talent show), and they cover the best songs!
  18. Amy Grant: A Christmas Album. Very 80s. This album is older than I am, but it’s very nostalgic to me because my mom played it every Christmas when I was little.
  19. Home Alone (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack). I mainly love all of these songs because Home Alone is my favorite movie, but this is no ordinary soundtrack; it’s composed by John Williams!
  20. Dave Barnes: Very Merry Christmas. A very chill album.

May your holiday season be merry and bright! ✨
