Songs of Advent 2013

Christmas music is awesome!

We love Christmas music at TNL! There is no other season that has such specific music associated with it – no other season has songs that instantly transport listeners into an epic, cosmic story like Christmas songs do. And while there is a lot of cheesy Christmas music out there, we really appreciate the Christmas songs that seem to capture so much of the weight and joy this season carries with it. And, it just happens to be some of the most fun music to sing and play together. So for your enjoyment, I’ve compiled some of our favorites from this year, complete with iTunes links for your listening pleasure! Enjoy!

Here is a list of the songs we sang together at TNL during Advent 2013
