I'm a few days behind, but I wanted to share a new playlist with you for the holiday season. We're officially 3 weeks away (how the F did that happen?) and hearing Christmas music suddenly feels right.
There are a few repeats on this collection. Forgive me, but there are a handful of songs I go back to year after year. Every holiday season, for me, includes Peggy Lee singing "The Christmas Waltz". Enjoy, and have the merriest of holidays.
