There are a number of reasons why I love December so much… 1 of those very well may be because I can listen to Christmas music 24/7 and not feel the slightest bit bad about it. After listing to a number of Christmas playlists on Pandora and Spotify over the past few weeks I’ve rounded up my five Christmas playlists and song for some of the most common holiday activities!
If your holiday baking plans are anything like mine, 4 different types of cookies, cake, and lasagna, then you need a playlist that will keep your kitchen upbeat. My favorite thing about this playlist is that it’s a mix of instrumentals and a few popular singers; it’s balanced enough to not get you distracted from you baking, but keep your toes tapping.
Features: Michael Buble, Ariana Grande, Tran-Siberian Orchestra, and Idina Menzel
Favorite Songs: Christmas Eve/ Sarajevo 12/24 by Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Carol of the Bells by Steven Sharp Nelson
Just as with cookie baking, wrapping gifts can be an all afternoon affair and require some upbeat Christmas tunes to keep you going all the way to the last bow!
R&B and Pop Holiday
Features: Mariah Carey, Straight No Chaser, Michael Buble, Pentatonix, and Mary J. Blige
Favorite Songs: This Christmas by Christina Aguilara, Last Christmas by Ariana Grande, and Rockin Around the Christmas Tree by Brenda Lee
Looking at Christmas Lights
If there is ever a time to spread Christmas cheer by singing loud for all to hear, it’s while driving down streets you don’t live on, looking at decorated houses you can’t afford.
Before internet Christmas playlists were a thing, we listened to cd’s with a variety of the holiday classics as we unwrapped presents and ate breakfast. Stick with the classics on the morning of the 25th to fill you and your family with Christmas cheer.
There’s nothing worse than music laughing all the way through your dinner. Keep the music turned down a notch with classical Christmas tunes that’s perfect background music for chatting with your family for hours.
