I’ve created new traditions for my own family and one of them is listening to Christmas music as soon as the weather changes. I say when ‘the weather changes’ only because in Toronto, we could literally have interchanging late summer and early winter weather here on any given day between September and November.
I find Christmas music, everything from classical to popular, to be quite polarizing. Some people love Christmas music, some hate it, and some only want it around during the holidays. I see it from both ends. I used to work retail and the same songs would be blasted over and over, day in and day out. It got to be quite exhausting as I started to associate it with angry, hurried customers during the seasonal rush.
However, since happily ditching that industry, my love for Christmas music has returned (with fury, might I add). I have some favourites I could listen to all year round but have relegated them for just the holidays to prevent depreciation. I find when something is cherished and enjoyed in moderation, the more coveted it becomes.
Thus, I wanted a share my Ultimate Christmas song list c/o Spotify. Not that anybody asked, but you’re welcome. Enjoy! (For everyone else who despises Christmas music, have a good day. Do come back next Wednesday!)
Do you like Christmas music? What’s your favourite Christmas song?
