With everything going on in the world today, finding your typical sense of holiday cheer can be challenging. So, while you’re looking for ways to get back in the swing of things for the holidays, a great way to start is queuing up your traditional holiday playlist.
“All I Want for Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey
Let’s be honest, there’s pretty much no way to listen to this song without singing or dancing. This Christmas classic has been on the playlist for decades, and will not be going anywhere anytime soon. So, sit back, crank it up, and let the velvety-soft voice of Mariah Carey carry you off into holiday bliss.
“Christmastime Is Here” by Vince Guaraldi Trio
This Christmas favorite is even more of a classic than the previous one. By now, multiple generations have grown up watching Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown, and have instant feelings of nostalgia any time this song is played. Sure to be a hit with the kids, this song, as well as “Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown,” are Christmas time traditions for families all across the county, and even the world.
“Jingle Bell Rock” by Bobby Helms
Most notably made famous with its appearance in the classic Christmas film Home Alone, this traditional holiday song could be considered to be one of the more raucous Christmas songs to date. While it is no Trans-Siberian Orchestra, this classic hit is sure to get you up on your feet.
“Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow” by Dean Martin
Though Andalusia isn’t exactly known for getting snow, it can be nice to put this holiday classic on and pretend that you’re somewhere colder for awhile. Maybe you picture yourself in a snowy ski town like Brekenridge, CO, or up in the Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains. Either way, sit back, relax, and daydream of cheery times while you listen to Dean Martin.
