Do you have a favorite Christmas song?

I have to admit, for me that's a tough choice! I love the beauty of traditional Christmas hymns that tell of Jesus' birth- songs like Silent Night and Oh Holy Night. Their beauty perfectly reminds us the reason we celebrate. I love more contemporary and upbeat holiday classics like Sleigh Ride and Holly Jolly Christmas- songs that remind us of the fun and joy of the season. And of course, I love discovering brand new songs that I can fall in love with and listen to throughout the holiday season.

I suppose it's no surprise that I like having a broad collection of holiday music to choose from throughout the holiday season. Each and every year I make sure to add at least one new CD to my collection. This year, one of those CDs is MercyMe's new Christmas album 'It's Christmas'.

I've been a fan of MercyMe from the first time that I heard their hit 'I Can Only Imagine'. I'm sure most of you are familiar with the song- it was one of those few songs that everyone knew- regardless of if you listened to Christian music or not! I continued to enjoy their later songs like 'Homesick' and 'Word of God Speak'. Such inspiring lyrics and beautiful voices, it's hard not to be a fan! So, I couldn't wait to get my hands on their Christmas album!

And for good reason, it was AWESOME! It was the perfect combination of those traditional hymns, contemporary classics and yes, even new songs! Just check out this great song list:

1. Newborn
2. Christmastime Again
3. Sleigh Ride
4. I'll Be Home For Christmas
5. Hold On Christmas
6. A Holly Jolly Christmas
7. Go Tell It On The Mountain
8. Do You Hear What I Hear
9. Our Lullaby
10. Joy
11. O Come, O Come 
12. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (Exclusive Bonus Track for Pizza Ranch)
13. O Holy Night (Exclusive Bonus Track for Pizza Ranch)
14. Silent Night (Exclusive Bonus Track for Pizza Ranch)
15. Joseph's Lullaby (Exclusive Bonus Track for Pizza Ranch)

This has quickly become a favorite of mine, and I'm excited to share it with all of you too!

Now, MercyMe It's Christmas is typically a very reasonable price at just $10-12 BUT they've teamed together with Pizza Ranch to give you both exclusive bonus tracks, AND a GREAT deal! Not only will they be giving away the CD with a $25 gift card purchase, but it will be available to purchase at each of it's 200 locations throughout the Midwest and Great Plains states....for just $5!
