This year’s Christmas playlist

Sometime around Thanksgiving, I decide it’s Christmas music time. The process begins by going through my iTunes library and flinging every holiday tune I find onto a playlist titled “Christmas” (to make it easy to find amidst other playlists with titles like “Country Boys” and “ABBA” and “NSFF” or Not Safe For Family).

Over the course of the holiday season, I’ll find myself consistently skipping over songs and I periodically go in and delete those from the playlist. I deleted the last few meh songs last night and, since I never skip the songs that are left, it looks like my favorite Christmas songs for 2015 are locked in.

“Santa Tell Me” by Ariana Grande

“O Holy Night” by Faith Hill

    I’ve just completed my own Xmas playlist and it’s topped by Michael Buble & the Puppini Sisters’ version of Jingle Bells. And altough my playlist is quite long, I find myself putting that one on repeat :-)
