It’s official. This past weekend I began listening to Christmas music. And, #SorryNotSorry. Last week was a rough one for many reasons, so enjoying the weekend with holiday tunes and a bottle of wine was just what I needed. I actually started designing my Christmas decor as well. I set up two trees (sans ornaments) and came up with a plan. And of course, when you’re putting up your tree, Christmas music must be playing in the background. Right?
When I went looking for music, I realized I had no Christmas music playlists. Since I only began my Tuesday Tunes series this year, I had to start from scratch. In compiling a playlist, I also realized that one would not be enough. I ended up making five. I know that sounds excessive, but it will make sense when it all comes together.
Over the next few weeks as we head toward Christmas, I’ll be sharing more of the five playlists here on IBC. In other words, if you like holiday music, you’re in for a treat! I’m also thinking about giving away a collection of my favorite holiday albums as part of this year’s 12 Days of Christmas. Whatever happens, there’s a lot of excitement to look forward to.
I’m fully aware that some of you aren’t quite ready for Christmas music. That’s okay. I get it. But, for those who want to start celebrating now, let’s do this!
To kick off this Tuesday Tunes holiday mini-series, I thought classic Christmas tunes were in order. These are songs from decades ago, such as Elvis singing Blue Christmas, Brenda Lee with Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree, and The Beach Boys harmonizing on Little Saint Nick. As much as I enjoy contemporary sounds, there’s just something about these classics. They seem to have a magical way of stirring up that Christmas spirit in your heart.
You can listen to these Classic Christmas tunes using the playlist above or listen directly on Spotify by clicking here.
