My favorite Christmas song is probably O Holy Night. It’s beautiful, serene, and angelic. But you can’t have 20 versions of O Holy Night looped on a playlist for every dinner party and gathering. This holiday I became obsessed with the perfect playlist. It’s easy to hear the classics, the traditional songs on the radio. What I was looking for was the unique, the remake or remix that captures the feeling of the season for me. This list is a compilation that I’ve been working on for a few years. There are some obvious choices but some I hope you’ll find to be a pleasant surprise. Please leave me some of your favorites below in the comment section!
***I just figured out I could create a playlist on iTunes. So the songs on this list that are available on iTunes are here.***
