christmas music | 1

I keep one of the radio presets in my car set on the local Christmas station all year round (I mean, they do play good music the other 11 months, but still) because I’m obsessed with Christmas music. Once Thanksgiving has passed (because why wait until December 1st?)m I love turning it up and singing along, having it play quietly in the background of my life, and also watching some of my little ones in the annual ASL Christmas Carol Signing (signing, not singing!) that several of the local schools do.

I’ve mixed some classics in with newer versions (which was a process that involved my parents putting up with me repeatedly going, “is this the right version?” (: So without further ado, here’s my (fairly long) Christmas playlist!

Told you it was long. I have an obsession. Plus, I’m writing a book set in December, sooooo Christmas music for the win until I finish it. (Sigh.) I’m sure it’ll be interesting to see what my playlist looks like next year!

I also love the Taylor Swift Christmas songs. Those aren’t on Spotify, but I keep the CD in my car at Christmastime so I don’t miss out on them. (:
