:: if you didn't see my first Christmas Love post, you can find it here ::
I think it's pretty well known that Christmas music is a thriving industry. It seems like every popular artist takes a stab at making their own Christmas album, which usually includes their favorite Christmas songs plus one of their non-Christmas chart-toppings songs remastered and remixed to somehow, by a long stretch of the imagination, be included on a Christmas album.
Each year after Thanksgiving, the radio starts to play this Christmas music, and every single retail store has their own playlist that is on repeat every single day until Christmas. They play those classic Christmas songs, you know, Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas is You and Bing Crosby's Silver Bells and Jackson 5's I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause. And then there is Michael Buble. I pretty much think that Michael Buble was put here on Earth to sing Christmas songs, don't you? (if you don't, please leave a comment telling me why - I can't even comprehend how someone could not like him!). And while I love all of the classic Christmas music as much as the next person, this year I decided to make it my mission to find some new (to me at least) Christmas music by artists I love the rest of the year.
I am happy to announce that I have been very successful in my quest! I even made a playlist of the songs I found on iTunes so that you can easily purchase and start enjoying them yourself if you feel so moved. I chose 20 specific songs to include on this list, but for many of the artists, I loved the entire Christmas album from which I chose the songs. There were so many good ones! So without further ado, here it is, my new-to-me Christmas Playlist...I hope some of the songs are new to you too and that you enjoy at least one or two!
PS - If you have any special Christmas songs that you just love, please share them with me! I always love finding more new Christmas music!
