Cold December Nights: A Christmas Playlist

Image

It’s no secret that I am crazy obsessed with Christmas. I love everything about it.
Snow, eggnog, christmas cookies, & spending time with friends & family.
But one of my favorite, favorite things about Christmas is…
the music!
Nothing says it’s Christmas time quite like hearing Christmas music wherever you go.

Every year I am in charge of the Christmas music and make a huge playlist. I like to have a wide variety of Christmas songs and include a little something for everyone – some good ole classics (Elvis & Frank Sinatra), a lil country (Nobody does a Country Christmas quite like Dolly Parton!), a lil pop (Britney, Mariah), indie, etc.
I like to add new Christmas songs each year and keep it updated because let’s be real, nobody wants to hear the same old christmas songs played over and over again, year after year.

Here’s a list of 20 of our current favorite Christmas songs for this holiday season..
(You can find all these songs on youtube or itunes.)
