Music Monday: Christmas Edition.

Is there really any better way to get into the Christmas spirit than to listen to Christmas music? No, I don’t think so. I’m a firm believer in waiting to stay blasting it until after Thanksgiving but then after that anytime is fair game. When you’re cleaning, when you’re cooking, (especially when you’re baking Christmas cookies I mean come on), when you’re doing homework, or at home work, on your way to school, at work in the office, in the car, you name it, I’m allowing it. It would seem as though many have their own interpretations as to what is really Christmas music, is it only the original artists? Do remakes give you the same feel? Well, my 20 song playlist has a little bit of both so I thought I’d share it and see how it compared to everyone else!

Here comes Santa Claus – Gene Autry

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer- Burl Ives

A holly jolly Christmas -Burl Ives

My only wish this year- Britney Spears

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas- Gayla Peevey

Last Christmas- Wham

I really am a sucker for the Old School original songs, but there are a lot of remakes out there that are very nicely done. Honestly, I think it’s kind of hard to truly mess up a Christmas song you know? But anything by Burl Ives and Bing Crosby will always be my favorite. There are a few others that could easily be added to this list, but for the most part, these are the ones I currently have on my playlist and have been listening to through all of my activities since Thanksgiving!

What does your list look like? Do you prefer the new stuff the old stuff? Do you only like the Original versions? Is there a song I missed that I absolutely should add? Tell me in the comments! I want to know!

I’m the girl who is as passionate about the environment as she is about wrestling. I’m the girl who eats plant-based snacks while screaming at the TV during football. I’m the girl who would rather sit and read a book than go out to a party. I’m the girl that feels most herself when she’s out in nature. I’m the girl who loves to get engulfed in a good TV series. I’m the girl who’s in love with superhero movies as much as she is chick flicks. I’m the girl who uses music to escape, I’m the girl that lives with anxiety every single day, but is always fighting. I believe that climate change is real, I believe in protecting the environment and all animals, domestic and wild. I believe that my vegetarian diet makes a difference in the world. I believe that a pencil can change the world. If any single bit of the above speaks to you, you've come to the right place. I'm still getting the hang of this blog thing, so bear with me. If I'm not blogging, you can find me on twitter at @amandaraee_x3 go follow and say hey :)
