Ultimate Holiday Playlist

I don’t know about you all, but lately I have been playing nothing but Christmas music! Today at work I even kept this lovely YouTube video on during my planning period so I could have some nice festive background while I worked.

I have different “categories” of Christmas music based on what I’m doing or what mood I’m in. Today I thought I’d share the songs that are definite holiday musts!

Classic Christmas Tunes (some are the original artists, some are covers I love)
