The holiday season is just around the corner, and what better way to get into the festive spirit than by curating your very own Christmas playlist? Whether you’re decorating the tree, wrapping presents, or simply enjoying a cozy evening by the fireplace, the right music can enhance the magic of this special time. Here are five suggestions to help you create the ultimate Christmas playlist that will have you humming along all season long.
Mix the old with the new, the lively with the mellow, and the global with the local. Whether you’re hosting a holiday party or simply enjoying some quiet moments, your handpicked playlist will be the perfect backdrop for creating cherished memories during this magical season.
Classics Never Fade
Start your playlist with timeless classics that have been the soundtrack of Christmas for generations. Songs like “Jingle Bells” by Frank Sinatra, “White Christmas” by Bing Crosby, and “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!” by Dean Martin is sure to bring that warm, nostalgic feeling to your celebrations.
Mix in some modern hits to keep your playlist fresh and relevant. Tracks like Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” Michael Bublé’s “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas,” and Pentatonix’s “Mary, Did You Know?” add a contemporary twist to your holiday vibes.
Sometimes, all you need is some soothing instrumental music to set the ambiance. Include instrumental renditions of classic carols and holiday melodies. Songs like “Carol of the Bells” by Lindsey Stirling or a jazzed-up version of “Deck the Halls” can add a touch of elegance to your playlist.
Upbeat and Fun
To keep the energy up during your holiday gatherings, add some cheerful and catchy tunes. Think “Feliz Navidad” by José Feliciano, “Last Christmas” by Wham!, and “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” by Brenda Lee. These songs are perfect for dancing and spreading joy.
Don’t forget to include some Christmas songs from your own region or culture. These songs can evoke a sense of home and tradition. “Pasko Na Sinta Ko” by Gary Valenciano or “Star ng Pasko” by ABS-CBN Artists can be wonderful additions. But if you want to vibe with the Cebuano carols, “Kasadya Ning Taknaa” or “Nabali ang Krismas Tri” can be great to listen to.
Remember, the key to a great Christmas playlist is variety. Mix the old with the new, the lively with the mellow, and the global with the local. Whether you’re hosting a holiday party or simply enjoying some quiet moments, your handpicked playlist will be the perfect backdrop for creating cherished memories during this magical season. So, grab your favorite hot beverage, put on your coziest sweater, and let the holiday tunes fill your home with warmth and joy.
