Deck the Halls // TGIF

It’s December! Which means it’s now socially acceptable to listen to Christmas music 24/7. Or watch every single Hallmark Channel Christmas movie if that’s more your style. (Or both!?) Let’s be real though, I’ve been listening to Christmas music since Halloween…with some My Favorite Murder interspersed in there too. But now it’s December! 24 days til Christmas! It’s also FRIDAY and I imagine lots of people will be decorating this weekend, so I wanted to share the Spotify Christmas playlist I’ve put together to help get y’all in the holiday spirit!


A few stand-out favorites of mine:

Carol Of The Bells – the bird and the bee

Must Be Santa – She & Him

Mele Kalikimaka – Jimmy Buffet

Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy – Lindsey Stirling (really this whole album)

Deck The Halls / Bring A Torch – Smokey Robinson & The Miracles

We’re only about 5% decorated at our house so far – gotta wait til after Joe’s 30th next week! (!!!) But then? Explosion of Christmas goodness. Can’t wait!


Music I’m Currently Enjoying…

After hearing rave reviews of Spotify from a handful of my friends, coworkers, and fellow students while I was still in school, I finally decided to try the 1 week trial of Spotify Premium. I hateee being asked what kind of music I listen to or what genre is my favorite, because I really do enjoy a little bit of everything (with a few exceptions, of course,) and after a few days of using the app

Sooo, I decided I’m going to share 5 of the playlists I’m listening to right now, because I have a feeling it may surprise some people! I’ll probably try to keep this up as time goes on, though it may be a while before I move on from this list – there’s a lot to choose from!

See? I wasn’t kidding. Incredibly inconsistent with any particular genre. I like variety, what can I say? I love that you can save playlists or songs to your phone – it makes my car rides a bit better, I’ve been sad since losing Sirius. (Though I guess lately I’ve had the country radio station playing in my car. Country makes me think of summer! <3)

I’ll probably end up paying for the Premium version of the app once my trial runs out – everything is so easy! Do you use Spotify? What are your favorite playlists? Any recommendations?
