5 Songs To Add To Your Christmas Playlist

Because the best way to get into the Christmas spirit is a good song

5 Songs To Add To Your Christmas Playlist

If there's one thing I love, it's music. Even more so, I absolutely adore a good Christmas song. There's nothing that can get me in the spirit more than a song about everyone's favorite snowman or a nice little ballad that sings of fireplaces and opening presents on Christmas morning. I do have a few favorites I'd like to recommend, though.

1. "Carol of the Bells"

This song is SO UNDERRATED. I don't hear enough people talk about how crazy awesome this song is. While it isn't the most Christmas-y song out there, it's a fantastic piece of music. If the right choir or orchestra performs it, it sends chills up my spine. There's just something about the harmonies, the words, and the powerful melody that make me love this song so so much.

2. "All I Want For Christmas Is You"

Everyone loves this song and if you don't, you're lying. I'm not even big on Mariah Carey but damn, this song is amazing! It's just so much fun and happy, you can't help but dance along. Plus, you gotta love those high notes Mariah belts out!

3. "Tender Tennessee Christmas"

Alright, so maybe I'm bias here but I love this song so much. It makes me think of home when I hear it, and being sat around the tree opening gifts. It makes me think of family, of friends, or how much I truly love the holiday. It makes me think how Christmas wouldn't feel the same if I wasn't here. Sure we don't get a lot of snow but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

4. "Where Are You Christmas"

"How the Grinch Stole Christmas" is, without a doubt, my favorite Christmas movie. This song, sung by Faith Hill, is absolutely wonderful. It isn't particularly happy but the vocals on this song give it a top spot for me. This is another song that gives me chills when I listen to it. If you've never heard it, you seriously need to.

5. "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays"

Man, remember when boybands dropped Christmas albums (One Direction, where you at?!). Those were the days. But seriously, this is actually an awesome Christmas song. Let Justin and JC sing to you this holiday season with their sultry tones and make you wish you were opening them this Christmas.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.
