Christmas tunes. I started listening before Halloween. There are two local stations in the Twin Cities that play the jingle-bell tunes all through the season. They are constantly on when I’m out and about. And I’m always sad the day after Christmas when regular, everyday music returns.
But for the month+ that Christmas tunes are allowed on the airwaves, I listen!
Safe to say that between the radio, Pandora, my iPod, my iTunes, the Sounds of the Season channel on TV, and every single store I enter, I’m pretty much covered with Christmas music.
My Christmas playlist, always on shuffle, looks something like this:
- Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas – Colbie Cailat
