Start writing a post

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."

“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"

“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

“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"

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.

2783

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
