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."

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"

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.

27794

When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.

I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.

We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.
