A Christmas Playlist: My Favorite Christmas Songs

December 4, 2016

There are so many Christmas songs and so many versions of our favorite Christmas songs. I’ve compiled a playlist for you to save straight to your Spotify with my personal favorites, ferriss-3including classic hits, original hits, traditional and some not so traditional (Christmas tunes by Lady Gaga, anyone?)

Have favorites or want to suggest some songs for the list? Leave a comment on this post or contact me! πŸ™‚Β 

Hellooooooooooo, December.

You are my favorite time of the year. It’s so lovely to see you and feel you. This past weekend, I saw a youth choir doing a holiday performance at Biltmore Village and the Christmas lights, wreaths and decor everywhere isΒ justΒ delightful–I can’t help but smile to myself when I’m out and about. Perhaps the best part about this time of year is the spirit and energy that fills the air! Things are a little bit brighter, people are a little bit merrier, smiles and laughter are a little bit cheerier and the Christmas music puts a sparkle in our neighbors’ eyes.

December is finally the time when I’m anxious to listen to Christmas music. I love traditional Christmas songs–It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas by Michael Buble, all things Josh Groban and Clay Aiken on some Winter Wonderland. Then there are those Christmas/holiday original hits like Where Are You Christmas by Faith Hill (or you may remember it from How The Grinch Stole Christmas, duh), Last Christmas by Wham! and Believe by Josh Groban. I also can’t deny I love me some Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree Hannah Montana style or a little Justin Bieber, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga Christmas remixes and takes on original Christmas songs. But who doesn’t love the N’Sync classic–Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays? Kiss Me At Midnight?

My Favorite Christmas Songs

My favorite Christmas song EVER that I play on repeat is Christmas Eve by Celine Dion. Other favorites include:

  • Anything by Celine Dion (literally every song — but particularly Don’t Save It All For Christmas Day, Another Year Has Gone By and Happy Christmas)
  • Where Are You Christmas — Faith Hill
  • Greatest Time Of Year — Aly & AJ
  • Believe — Josh Groban
  • Last Christmas — Wham!
  • What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve — Ella Fitzgerald

You can get the rest of my holiday favorites in the playlist below! My Christmas playlist has a little bit of the expected (like Silent Night) and unexpected (like a remix of Kanye’s Coldest Winter by Pentatonix). Discover new Christmas songs and rediscover Christmas classics you know and love!

What are your favorite Christmas songs? Happy listening and merry, merry! XOXO

    Great list! I love non-traditional Christmas songs. Here’s a playlist of some lesser-known Christmas music: https://open.spotify.com/user/qaz23/playlist/22Hs4AlaOFExwI0cOEBHSj
