Your New Holiday Playlist

Just a quaint little sampling of the songs that I torture my entire family with for the month of December because I can. Sorry, fam. But if you’re interested, here are my favorites. Great for casual holiday parties or themed baking extravaganzas. Play it for you dog, your nephew, play it while you’re alone stuffing your face with leftover sugar cookies. Whatever floats your boat.

Here's the Spotify link for your convenience :)

1. "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" – Either Frank Sinatra or Judy Garland.

I just can’t choose a favorite. It’s like picking a favorite child.

2. "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" – Frank Sinatra

Why does he have to write it three times? I don't know but I love it.

3. "The Christmas Song" – Nat King Cole

Honestly, have you ever roasted chestnuts on an open fire? Me either... sounds dangerous.

4. "Dance Of the Sugar Plum Fairy" – Pentatonix

A Capella makes everything more exciting.

5. "Linus and Lucy" – Vince Guaraldi Trio

*Whah Wah wah wah Wahnt wanh wah*

6. "Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree" – Brenda Lee

Let's bring back sock hops.

7. "Sleigh Ride" – The Ronettes

The horse clomping in the beginning makes it.

8. "Underneath the Tree" – Kelly Clarkson

Don't judge me.

9. "Feliz Navidad" – Jose Feliciano

You should really make the effort to actually learn the lyrics. Please.

God bless the 80's and Springsteen blue jeans
