Merry Christmas

I’m taking a page from my friend Brina’s Music Monday playlists and am attempting to make one too. So here are 50 of my favourite Christmas songs ~ something I’ve been compiling to keep my holiday spirit up.

I’m all over the place. I know that and am completely okay with it.

If you’re having trouble loading this page (it keeps crashing for me on my iPad but the computer version is fine), then you can see the whole playlist on YouTube here.  (If the video is missing, that means it’s been deleted from YouTube since I posted this. They were all here to begin with.)
