Monthly Playlist – December
December 1, 2017
December 1st is here and that means it’s now totally acceptable to play Christmas music in front of people. Because I definitely, have absolutely not, in any way, been listening to it for weeks already. Never.
I’ve noticed that everyone has a special Christmas song or two that really gets them in the mood for the holiday season or truly takes them back to their childhood. It always seems to vary with each person I ask so I decided to round up my favourite Christmas songs for you. Before you skip to the playlist and listen (!!!), I need to preface it with something: Spotify doesn’t always have songs I want to share. If it did, the very #1 song on this list would be Merry Xmas Everybody by Slade. Every Christmas morning my parents would wake my brother and I up (once we got passed the phase of waking up at the crack of dawn to sneak down and see the Christmas tree) to this song BLASTING in the house. It was The. Best. Way to wake up on Christmas morning and it’s absolutely my favourite tradition about Christmas.
This December Monthly Playlist is a mix of songs that takes me back to Christmas while living in England, my favourite Christmas-time movie soundtracks (specifically: Love Actually, White Christmas, and Home Alone), and some classics that everyone loves. Please share with me which Christmas songs are your favourite and why! I’m always so interested to learn about people’s upbringings and traditions.
