My Christmas Playlist

Hello, all! I cannot believe that Christmas is only nine days away! It feels like just yesterday we were carving the Thanksgiving turkey, and now Christmas is literally next week. This year has flown by (thank God, right?).

Even though our Christmas will be a quiet one this year, we still have been celebrating in full swing. I talked about this in a previous post, but just because Christmas looks differently this year does not mean it is not worth celebrating anymore. Sure, the holiday parties have been replaced by Zoom calls and not many people are kissing under the mistletoe this season, but Christmas is still a joyous time of year and worth celebrating. Instead of throwing the baby out with the bathwater, we have adapted to the current world and honestly? We have been having a grand time!

We have been watching holiday movies every night, wrapping presents, baking cookies, and listening to Christmas music all day. With that being said, this year I created my own Christmas playlist to enjoy. I usually just download a playlist off my phone or something, but this year the playlists seemed to be missing a lot of my favorites… so I made my own! Every one of these songs is pretty popular and I am sure you all know them and their lyrics by heart. However, I decided to share the playlist in case you, too, were looking to create your own.
