Besides reconnecting with loved ones, the cookies, the gifts and the decorations, I love the music of the Christmas season. I have more than 300 Christmas songs that I flip through each year. Although, I do gravitate to the non-traditional Christmas songs. Meaning old songs, but done by modern artists. Plus original songs.
I must say, “Home for Christmas” by *NSync and “My Kind of Christmas” by Christina Aguilera are the two full Christmas albums I love the most. Blame it on growing up during the whole boy band, teenybopper late-’90s and early 2000s.
My three favorite Christmas songs are “Carol of the Bells,” “O Holy Night” and “All I Want For Christmas.” I have almost 20 different versions of each one. I could probably listen to just a playlist of those songs all Christmas season long. But I try to mix it up. Which is why I bring you this playlist!
