  • My favorite Christmas song is “Mary, did you know” the CeeLo version. LOVE IT! #BLMGirl

    • I don’t know how I’ve somehow never heard his version. I’ll be checking it out and maybe put it on next year’s playlist. Thanks for sharing!

  • Hands down my favorite Christmas song is This Christmas by Donnie Hathaway. Great list. Thanks for sharing. #BLMGirls

    • That song always makes me feel like Christmas. It is such a classic.
