Music Mondays: It's the Greatest Time of Year
It's the greatest time of year, and it's here
Help me celebrate it.
With everybody here, friends so dear
Let me simply state it.
Joy to the world and everyone
Lift up your hearts and feel the love
It's our favorite way, to spend the holiday...yeah!
Believe or not, "It's the Greatest Time of Year" is one of my most played songs on my Christmas playlist. It was written by Aly Michalka, Aj Michalka, Anotonina Armato, and Tim James. The song was released in 2006 and featured in Disney's The Santa Clause 3 movie. The music video was played frequently on The Disney Channel during that time. My kids loved the young Disney artists (Aly & AJ) and this song played a lot during carpool and at home. We all enjoyed a new Christmas song that was upbeat, fun, and catchy.
Even though my kids are young adults now, I still play this song - a lot. It's become one of my favorite holiday tunes. It helps to break up some of the classic holiday tunes on my playlist. It puts me in the Christmas mood and puts a smile on my face. My family loves this time of year so this song really captures how we feel about the Christmas season.
Only 10 more sleeps until Santa arrives! Hope you've been good!
