And that can only mean one other thing: it's time to pump up the volume on my iTunes Christmas playlist.
With over 6 hours of songs to choose from, I usually just select shuffle mode and jam out. And while I love each tune for the Christmas spirit it brings, there are some for which I always have to hit repeat (maybe 2 or 20 times).
My top 13 favorite songs of the Season (in no particular order) are as follows:
O Holy Night by 'N Sync
God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman/We Three Kings by Barenaked Ladies & Sarah McLachlan
Jingle Bell Rock by Bobby Helms
The Christmas Song by Dave Matthews
Rockin Around the Christmas Tree by Brenda Lee
Deck the Rooftop by the Glee Cast
We Three Kings by Jim Brickman
Angels We Have Heard on High by Josh Groban & Brian McKnight
Wait. Where were we? Sorry, I got distracted by the smooth butter that Josh & Brian's voices just melted in my ears.
Ah yes, my next favorite songs of the Season:
All I Want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey
Mele Kalikimaka by Jimmy Buffet
The 12 Days of Christmas by Straight No Chaser
Love is Christmas by Sara Bareilles
And last, but certainly not least:
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays by 'N Sync (seriously the entire album is my favorite)
If you're not in the spirit now, then I think you need to start from the top and read this post again.
No matter what you're jamming out to, remember to be good to one another, this Black Friday and every day. Happy Holidays, y'all!
