Christmas playlist: West Coast December

We’ve asked a few of our music-loving friends to compile refreshing playlists of Christmas songs of new and old, original and classics, for our readers to get ready for the holidays with a jingle in their day.

Instead of bringing tidings of tinsel-tunes, this next Christmas tracklist by Sam McLoughlin plays off the West Coast mood with chill, wintery, and contemplative songs. It goes great with a mug of orange pekoe tea, and a project you’re working on, be it magazine deadlines, or writing the next great American Canadian novel.

Stream the playlist below for your listening pleasure.
