15 Christmas Songs That NEVER Get Old

It's officially the holiday season and if you're like me, you LOVE listening to music. Here're some of my favorite Christmas songs both classic and newer.

“Last Christmas” - WHAM! / Cover by Glee Cast

Ever since I heard this song back in 5th grade, I've loved it, making it my FAVORITE Christmas song.

Favorite lyrics: "Last Christmas, I gave you my heart. But the very next day you gave it away. This year, to save me from tears. I'll give it to someone special."

“This Christmas” - Donny Hathaway

This song isn't like the typical sleigh ride, mistletoe song.

Favorite lyrics: "And this Christmas, will be a very special Christmas, for me."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pj1mVUEHeUE

“All Alone on Christmas” - Darlene Love

I LOVE this song, despite it being a song about being alone on the holiday. From the lyrics, to the beat, to Darlene Love's voice, I listen to it all holiday season.

Favorite lyrics: "I've got to know, Where do lonely hearts go, Because nobody ought to be all alone on Christmas"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbNFVSRET2c

“I’ll Be Home” - Meghan Trainor

I heard this song a few years ago on a Spotify Christmas playlist, and I sing the chorus at the top of my lungs because it's just that good.

Favorite lyrics: "I promise, I promise I'll be home. Home, I'll be home

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2P8RU_dHyi4

“Feliz Navidad” - Jose Feliciano

This song is a CLASSIC, that my brother would appreciate because he has loved this song for years. Not to mention it's so freaking catchy!

Favorite lyrics: "I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart."

All of Pentatonix’s Songs

They make instrument noises with their voices, kudos to them!!

“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" - Burl Ives

Rudolph has always been one of my favorite childhood Christmas movies, besides Frosty the Snowman, both tell such cute stories both through the movies and the songs.

Favorite lyrics: "Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say, "Rudolph, with your nose so bright, won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXlU2uL1e3Y

“Step Into Christmas” - Elton John

I first heard this song on 98.1 WOGL and since then, I make sure to listen to it every Christmas season.

Favorite lyrics: "Step into Christmas, let's join together. We can watch the snow fall forever and ever. Eat, drink and be merry, come along with me. Step into Christmas, the admission's free.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2Tc_VAb4HE

“Mistletoe" - Justin Bieber

I may not be the biggest JB fan, but this song could melt any girl's heart.

Favorite lyrics: "It's the most beautiful time of the year. Lights fill the streets, spreadin' so much cheer."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUjn3RpkcKY

“Santa Tell Me” - Ariana Grande

I'm not an Ariana Grande fan either, but her voice is like no other especially singing Christmas songs so I just had to include her.

Favorite lyrics: "Santa tell me if you're really there. Don't make me fall in love again if he won't be here next year. Santa tell me if he really cares 'cause I can give it all away if he won't be here next year."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlR0MkrRklg

“Jingle Bell Rock” - Bobby Helms

I'll never forget, my grandfather bought my brothers and me a dancing Santa that shakes his hips to this song, we call him "Shaking Butt Santa."

Favorite lyrics: "What a bright time, it's the right time, to rock the night away. Jingle bell time is a swell time, to go gliding in a one-horse sleigh."

“Dominick the Donkey” - Lou Monte

Every day during December of my senior year in high school, 98.1 WOGL would play this song at exactly 7:00 a.m. At that time I would be driving myself and my younger brother to school and I sang along to every word in the car.

Favorite lyrics: "Santa's got a little friend, his name is Dominick, the cutest little donkey, you never see him kick"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ca5wXojemRM

“Do They Know It’s Christmas” - Band Aid

There's no particular reason that this is one of my favorites other than I like the lyrics.

Favorite lyrics: "Throw your arms around the world, at Christmas time."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RGz3vdJg00

“Winter Wonderland” - Michael Buble

Any song he sings sounds so calming, yes even Christmas songs!

Favorite lyrics: "A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight. Walking in a winter wonderland."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIKt5p3UmXg

“White Christmas/Blue Christmas” - Elvis Presley

Elvis may be the king of rock and roll, but his Christmas album screams king of Christmas with his dreamy voice.

Favorite lyrics: "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, just like the ones I used to know. Where the treetops glisten and children listen, to hear sleigh bells in the snow"

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom.

But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

I Recommend This $85 POC-Founded Hair Brush To Everyone — Here's Why It's Worth EVERY Penny

It replaces nearly three steps in my hair routine.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

What Your Favorite Rom-Com Says About You And Your Dream Guy

These movies are always there for us when we need them.

YouTube

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).
