A musical advent calendar of 25 holiday songs.

Your 2015 Christmas Music Playlist
Huffington Post

Now that Thanksgiving is over, we can go turn our car radio to the local seasonal Christmas music station. It just felt wrong doing it any earlier than this, even though we really wanted to.

Can we all agree that Christmas music is the best genre of music? Sadly this music is reserved for December and sometimes on one special radio holiday in July, so we have limited time to get our holiday music fix.

Christmas music acts as our holiday activity soundtrack. It’s the only thing we can listen to as we make gingerbread houses, wrap presents and decorate the Christmas tree. Christmas music even acts as the soundtrack to our favorite holiday movies and gets timed to accompany Christmas lights. This music is essential to our holiday experience and we can’t get enough.

So you love Christmas music? You know who else loves some good classic Christmas songs? Other musicians. For years they have been sharing their takes on our favorite classic holiday jams. Musical artists are even creating their own holiday songs instead of redoing the classics.

And now in 2015, there seems to be more and more Christmas music that is being put out by our favorite artists. Everyone from Snoop Dogg to the “Duck Dynasty” cast has their own Christmas album these days.

So here is your ultimate Christmas music playlist for 2015 that includes modern spins and old classics. Consisting of 25 songs, this playlist can act as a musical advent calendar of sorts. So make a Spotify playlist and sip hot cocoa while you listen. Add some Christmas music to your celebration and enjoy!

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).
