73 Songs for the Christmas Season

In current listenings, tracks to listen to on December 19, 2011 at 3:50 pm

It’s the week before Christmas, which means listening to non-stop Christmas music at every spare second. Okay, I have to admit. I have been waking up to a Christmas playlist on my iPod since early November. This year I downloaded a bunch of new Christmas and holiday tunes to include in that glorious playlist. And as much as I enjoyed the variety, I’ve gotta say…some Christmas music is awful.

So, friends, here is my new Christmas Favourites playlist, refined from the old smorgasborg. I really think you’ll enjoy most, if not all of the songs on this list…that is, if you are a fan of Christmas tunes.

I also posted this on iTunes for easy access if you want to pick up a few of these songs. The playlist on the iTunes Store has only 55 of 73 songs available, and you can do some searching for the rest.
