Get Into That Christmas Spirit

If you’re anything like me, I spend most of the holiday season compiling a list of my favorite Christmas songs only to delete the list come January, thus forcing me to repeat myself in November/December!  Last year, I got smart.  We had an external hard drive, so I saved my songs in a folder labeled “Christmas”.  This year, all I had to do was move the folder back onto my computer and voila!  Instant Christmas playlist!  I thought I would share some songs with you to get you into that holiday spirit.  (I know, I know, it’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but since I work retail it has been Christmas since before Halloween!!!) 

**Just a warning…I listen to a lot of traditional music at my job, so a lot of my songs are the “different” Christmas songs.  I do have some traditional music, but usually they are sung by a newer artist or have a twist of some sort on them.  It’s just what I like.  🙂
