There are SO many Christmas albums out there, so I know it can be hard to pick one to listen to. Here are some of my favorite Christmas albums from different genres!

1. Retro Christmas Music: Phil Spector's "A Christmas Gift For You"

The upbeat tempos and happy harmonies on this album bring a 60's vibe to its listeners, and can't help but get you excited for the holiday season. Even the album cover feels retro.

My favorite: I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

2. Alternative Christmas Music: Relient K's "Let it Snow Baby... Let it Reindeer"

The heavy guitars give the traditional Christmas songs on this album a fun twist. They also have some great original songs.

My favorite: Sleigh Ride

3. Pop Christmas Music: Kelly Clarkson's "Wrapped in Red"

On this album, Clarkson uses her amazing voice to give us an album that not only holds the sound of traditional Christmas albums, but also with a different sound more unique to her own style.

My favorite: Winter Dreams (Brandon's Song)

4. Timeless Christmas Music: Michael Bublé's "Michael Bublé Christmas"

Most of his songs on this album stay traditional, but with his voice you don't really need to do much to make an amazing Christmas album. Regardless of whatever type of Christmas music you want to listen to, this album will never disappoint in preparing you for the holiday season.

My favorite: It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

5. Musical Theater Christmas Music: Lea Michele's "Christmas in the City"

Before this album came out, I was a little worried that it would be like listening to an unreleased Glee Christmas soundtrack. However, I was pleasantly surprised that Michele was able to use her background in musical theater to make this album completely her own!

My favorite: Silver Bells

6. Movie Soundtrack Music: The Polar Express

Not only is this a great Christmas movie, but the music is amazing as well!

My favorite: Believe

7. A Mix of Everything: Glee's Season 2 Christmas Album

The one thing I do miss about Glee is the annual Christmas album featuring a bunch of Christmas music. Out of all of their Christmas albums, this one is my favorite.

My favorite: Last Christmas

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester.
