It’s the season for celebrating Jesus’ birth! Christmas music starts on Family Life the day after Thanksgiving and continues through Christmas to the end of the year. Rejoice with traditional carols, new songs celebrating the birth of Christ, and many seasonal favorites.  12/28/21 we’ll return to 50% Christmas through New Year’s Eve.  We will kick off 2022 with a Day of Praise and return to our regular programming on 1/2/22.

Looking for a more customized listening experience? Try one of two year-round online Christmas music streams. “A Family Life Christmas” combines multiple styles of Christmas music, past and present. “A Peaceful Christmas” plays mostly instrumental, easy listening tunes, and makes wonderful background music during the season.

It’s been our pleasure for the past three decades to present creative and wholesome Christmas programs for the whole family to listen to together. So, turn off the TV, gather the family, and enjoy these classic stories on the Family Hour.
