My Favorite Christmas Songs Now

These last few years, nothing gets me in the mood for Christmas more than music. It gives me the warm feeling of the holidays that we need more than ever this year. I love listening to Christmas songs in the mornings while making breakfast or while decorating the tree.

I grew up with the classics: Silent Night, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, etc. Beautiful as they are, I’m mostly listening to more recent, pop Christmas songs these days.

Check these out today while you finish up your work or buy those final gifts!

And if you’ve hit your limit on Christmas songs for the day, try this jam I put on while folding laundry last night. I wished I had more socks to fold!

Tell me what your favorite Christmas songs are in the comments. Merry Christmas!

This Morning Jam Had Me Dancing In My Kitchen!

I heard this song in a grocery store on Sunday for the first time in years. I played it this morning and wound up dancing through my kitchen and swaying while doing the dishes. I just hope they’re clean.

We all need a little motivation and something to make us smile these days. Hope this works for you like it did for me today!

The Songs Getting Me Going in the Morning

For the last couple of months, I’ve been listening to up-tempo music while making breakfast and in the first hour of my day. It’s fun, it helps jolt me awake, it puts me in the right frame of mind to attack the day. Podcasts used to be my go-to during this time, but with later sunrises, colder mornings and the world situation as a whole, I find I need a stronger stimulus.

These have been my go-to’s lately. Whether you need them when you wake up or to revive yourself on a sleepy afternoon, I hope you enjoy them!

Bonus: Song I listened to while writing this: Lime – Unexpected Lovers.

What are you listening to? Leave it in the comments and have a great Friday and weekend everyone!
