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.
This next Christmas playlist by Craig Ketchum brings an hour of sing-a-long songs and chillingly beautiful hymns. Don’t be fooled: these aren’t your door-to-door carols. Picture a bonfire in the snowy outdoors with your best buds, marshmallow hot chocolate (is that all that’s in there?), your token guitar friend, and the clear northern sky.
Stream or download here below for your listening pleasure.
