Christmas Music!

In my family, growing up, it was treasonous to listen to Christmas music before Thanksgiving. For some reason, even though I hated this as a kid, it’s something I hold to pretty firmly in adulthood. Thanksgiving deserves to be observed without Christmas getting all up in its business, you know?

That said, once the Turkey has been served and the clock strikes midnight, when others are hauling rear-end to the malls for Black Friday deals, I am queuing up the KING of all Christmas playlists. In honor of this tradition, I thought I’d share some of my absolute favorite Christmas songs, just in case you need to expand your own playlist this year.

#1 – Christmas Lights by Coldplay

#2 – Carol of the Bells by The Pentatonix

#3 – Baby It’s Cold Outside by Zooey Deschanel and Leon Redbone

#4 – Petit Papa Noel by Julien Neel

#5 – Hark! The Herald Angels Sing by Vince Guaraldi (from the Charlie Brown Christmas Album)

#6 – The Twelve Days of Christmas by Straight No Chaser

#7 – Silent Night/ Away in a Manger by Relient K

#8 – All I Want for Christmas Is You by Olivia Olsen (from the Love Actually soundtrack)

#9 – Blue Christmas by Elvis

#10 – Cool Yule by Louis Armstrong

#11 – Santa Baby by Eartha Kitt

#12 – White Christmas by the Drifters

#13 – Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree by Brenda Lee
