Of course, I had to come back in December if only to post my annual Christmas music playlist. But to be honest… for a little while I wasn’t sure if I would actually put it together. You all know how much I absolutely love Christmas music, but this month I’ve been listening to a different album on repeat.
But I knew I’d regret it if I didn’t get my annual dose of Christmas music in. (It’s usually playing 24/7 this time of year!) And while it would be an understatement to say that I threw consistency out of the window this year with my blog, the one thing I have done for as long as I can remember on Dreams, etc. (before it was even called that!) is post a Christmas music playlist. So. Here are the playlists I put together for you this year.
That’s right! I said playlistS. I always throw music I’m listening to into the playlist and then narrow it down before I post it so that it’s a nice, reasonable size. But this year I culled a few songs, but didn’t want to take out anything else. That playlist has a little over two hours of Christmas goodness for you! But it was a little difficult to organize the songs to tell my story–as I do each year–so I rolled up my sleeves and was ruthless! Kind of. The abridged version clocks in at just over an hour. (I tried to get it under an hour. I really did.)
You’ll find the staples: it starts with Harry Connick Jr.’s “Sleigh Ride” as it does every year. (It’s the first Christmas song I listen to every year!) And it’ll take you into New Year’s Eve with Pink Martini’s “Auld Lang Syne.” (If you’re not a fan of the song, be sure to give this version a listen!) And Mahalia Jackson’s “Silent Night, Holy Night” marks the night of our Savior’s birth.
Tell me what Christmas songs you’ve been listening to this year! I might have to make our full playlist just a little bit longer.
I'm Crystal, a storyteller who currently resides in the frozen tundra of Minneapolis with my sweet pup Little One. At Dreams, etc. you can find my musings about attempting (and sometimes failing) to incorporate daily creativity into the bustle, as well as the things and experiences that provide inspiration. I love gloomy weather, live on coffee and tea, and firmly believe in dancing in the rain... and the moonlight. Thanks for stopping by!
