This is the first time in four years that I haven’t worked in retail during the Christmas season. There are a few advantages to this. Firstly, I don’t have to put up with crabby customers who have left their shopping to the last minute and demand to know why we’ve sold out of this year’s big-ticket item. I don’t have to wear an itchy Christmas uniform. And I’m not being forced to listen to Christmas music from the first week in November until January.
Now that I don’t have to listen to Christmas pop music on repeat, I’m actually pretty excited about cranking up the holiday tunes in my own home. There’s something about festive music that just makes me want to rock around the Christmas tree. So today I thought I’d share my own Christmas playlist with you for your listening pleasure.
This playlist is perfect for throwing on while you’re decorating the tree, as background music while you make Christmas cookies or as the soundtrack to your casual Christmas party. I feel that this mix is a good representation of my musical tastes. There’s a blend of pop classics, vintage Christmas tunes, comedy parodies and carols. I hope you enjoy listening to it.
What’s on your Christmas playlist? Are there any songs that I should add to mine?
