December 2017 Spotify Playlist
It’s the first Tuesday of the month and you know what that means! It’s time for my monthly Tuesday Tunes playlist! Since the Christmas season is officially in full swing, I thought I’d round up some of my all-time favorite holiday tracks for your listening pleasure. I’ll be adding more songs to the playlist throughout the month so be sure to subscribe to it and shuffle through from time to time!
I’ll be the first to admit that the 70° weather has me feeling a bit more like the Grinch than one of Santa’s little helpers but putting on a bit of festive music in the evenings has been improving my mood tremendously! This year I have felt like each holiday has crept up on me without really being able to enjoy the preparation and anticipation so I’m determined to make the Christmas season different! I haven’t gone all out and started listening to Christmas music in the car yet but just an hour in the evenings when I unwind from work, feed the dogs, unload the dishwasher, and start prepping dinner is the perfect dose.
I’m not a huge fan of contemporary Christmas music. My tastes definitely gravitate towards the Christmas classics. I love the jazzy, big band feeling of the old crooners. There’s something very fun and lighthearted about a lot of these silly jingles that puts a smile on my face. I started the playlist with a song by Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings because she was from my town. I actually had the opportunity to meet some of her family members at a previous job! I’ve also included some songs I think are underrated like Nat King Cole’s The Happiest Christmas Tree! It’s so adorable and catchy. If you’ve never heard it before, I promise it will have you singing along in no time at all.
P.S. I also found the best YouTube yule log for your Christmas parties at home!
So tell me, what’s your favorite Christmas song?
