Christmas Tunes

A Playlist for the Season

I promised in my post yesterday that I would get up some Christmas posts the next few weeks. The first one that I could think of is one of my favorite ways to get in the mood for Christmas. I always declare that the minute I put the tree up that it is then the perfect time to begin playing Christmas music – at least around the house while I decorate.

You find the entirety of my Christmas playlist on Spotify, just click here. It will request to open Spotify if you have it or you can download it. It is a free music streaming service! I absolutely adore it.

But on to what is on this playlist. I tried to keep it to a short list so you can get a general idea of what is on it. Of course there are typical staples that I can never be without during Christmas like “Snoopy’s Christmas” or Frank Sinatra’s crooning version of “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.”

  • My Favorite Things by Tony Bennett
  • First Noel by Nat King Cole
  • A Marshmallow World by Dean Martin
  • I’ll Be Home For Christmas by Michael Buble
  • Little Saint Nick by The Beach Boys
  • It’s Beginning To Look Like Christmas by Bing Crosby
  • Winter Wonderland by Dean Martin
  • Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town by Frank Sinatra

The last song I listed is mainly included because I danced to it during my time in jazz/tap when I was younger. I danced to this before Mean Girls made a mockery of this beautiful song.

I hope you all enjoy my Christmas playlist and create one of your own to get you in the holiday spirit!
