Grown Up Christmas Wish

I've always loved Christmas music, whether its traditional songs like Away in a Manger, Hark! The Harold Angels Sing, The First Noel, and Joy to the World, or more contemporary favorites like Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas and The Christmas Shoes. Of the contemporary songs, my favorite remains Grown up Christmas Wish. Why? It just quantifies how I generally feel around Christmas time. The lyrics are beautiful and simple and I especially love the chorus:

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start,
And time would heal all hearts
And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my grown-up Christmas list

For those who don't know, I am a singer. I have to admit that I haven't done much recording lately but I intend to make it a priority again in 2014 because frankly, I miss doing it. Below is a version Grown up Christmas Wish that I recorded back in 2011. Enjoy :)

What are some of your favorite Christmas tunes? Do you prefer newer contemporary music or are you into the more traditional sounds?
