The Best Christmas Songs And Covers For December

We all love a bit of Christmas music before Christmas day itself, here’s a few of my favs!

The Best Christmas Songs And Covers For December

1. Home for Christmas - Maria Mena

This is my absolute favorite song because for an international student like me, this has so much meaning and truth. Even if you aren't international, the words can still have a lot of depth and meaning to them for so many of us who either want to be home for christmas but can't or for those of us who long for a different home that they can't go to this christmas.

2. Carol of the Bells - Piano Guys

If you are like me and love the Piano Guys and they're incredible talent and beautiful elegance in playing the instruments they play, you ll love this amazing rendition of Carol of the Bells.

3. Silent Night - Rebecca Roubion

I literally downloaded Rebecca’s full acoustic album when I heard her sing this song. Her unique voice and acoustic sounding vibes are a great twist to many classic Christmas songs you've already heard.

4. Hallelujah - Pentatonix

When I first saw the music video of this on Youtube, I think I replayed it about five times in a row, it’s breathtaking! They are incredibly talented in general but their music videos can honestly give me shivers. Listen to the song and then go watch it on youtube!!!

5. White Christmas - Irving Berlin

Nothing is better than this classic Christmas song! Irving Berlin's handsome voice always makes me sing along too!

6. The First Noel - Frank Sinatra

Again with the lovely christmas classics, and its Frank Sinatra!

7. Let it snow - Boyz men II, Brian Mcknight

Now I must say this twist on this classic Christmas song is a great ‘dance in your fluffy socks near the fireplace song’! The boys really break it down but will also make you say amen at every vocal run and improp.

8. Christmas (baby please come home) -Michael Buble

Everybody's favorite classical singer with a voice that makes you feel as if you're listening to someone of an older generation! This song will never go off my christmas list.

9. Auld Lang Syne (Beta radio)

Robert Burns, the famous Scottish poet, wrote this song a while ago, now why should you listen to it? My mother makes my family sing this song every New Years for tradition! The words actually mean for ‘old times sake.’ It’s a beautiful traditional song and a fun folk song to listen to as well!

10. I Wish It Was Christmas Today - Julian Casablancas

A newer christmas song, this song is a nice modern pop/christmassy song to make you feel all jazzed up and ready for christmas. A kind of indie/acoustic vibe runs through this song too. A great listen for something different and refreshingly new.

11. Little Drummer Boy- Josh Groban and Andy Mckee

Everybody loves this Christmas basic, not to mention the amazing classic voices of Josh Groban and Andy Mckee. You will feel like an audience member in their classical concert!

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
