  1. For King and Country’s version of Little Drummer Boy is the best!!!!
    I’ll have to check out the other ones to see what I think!

    1. Yes, their version is SOOOO good! You should also listen to the version by Lincoln Brewster (featuring KJ52) too. It’s a super fun and energetic version. Thank you for stopping by, Courtney!

    2. Hi Courtney! Yes, I agree, For King and Country’s version is definitely an awesome version and one of the best (if not the best!) I really like Lincoln Brewster’s version as well. It’s very energetic!

  2. Some of my favorite Christmas songs are “Mary’s Boy Child” (especially the version by Harry Belafonte), “Mary, Did You Know”, ” Sleigh Ride” by The Boston Pops, “A Thousand Candles” “O Holly Night”, and “Silent Night”. Though it is hard to go wrong with Christmas music.
