In our house, the only music that's allowed in December is Christmas music. We're not going to waste precious moments listening to music we can hear any other time of year.
But, let's be honest: the stuff that's played on those smooth jazz stations gets really old after a while (if I hear "Christmas Shoes" one more time...) So, this year I'm excited that many of my favorite artists now have Christmas albums. Since Thanksgiving, I've been overdosing on She & Him, Pink Martini, Sufjan Stevens, Good Lovelies, and Mindy Gledhill (among others.)
For your listening pleasure, I've put together a super-long mix to help you get into the Christmas spirit. If you've got Spotfiy, you can listen straight from the app below - or you can always subscribe to my Playlist from your own computer. If not, I've included the album names & artists below.
Also - I'm always looking for new Christmas music. So, let me know if there's anything else I should be listening to!
Joy To the World (Pink Martini,) Silver & Gold (Sufjan Stevens,) Holidays Rule (various artists,) A Very Merry Perri Christmas (Christina Perri,) A Very She & Him Christmas (She & Him,) The Hotel Cafe Presents...
