Your (Slightly Early) Christmas Playlist

November 23, 2014 jenikaray 0 Comments

Because it’s (almost) the most wonderful time of the year, we’ve compiled a playlist of new Christmas tunes (and a few favorites from the last couple of years), to get your holiday season off the right start. Sure, a sizable chunk of Christmas music borders on insufferable, but these songs really do help make the season bright. Give it a listen or—if you must—bookmark it and come back to it after Thanksgiving. Either way, fa la la la la la …
