Day 1: Nutcracker Recap
Hey daydreamers! For today’s Blogmas, I have a super fun post planned for y’all! The amazing Mary Elizabeth from Middle Mary emailed me about a collab for each other’s Blogmas, and I was SO EXCITED about the opportunity! We came up with a Christmas-themed playlist swap featuring our favorite Christmas songs. Basically, we sent each other our top 15 holiday tunes for the other to react to and rate out of 10! Don’t forget to check out her post, where she reacted to and rated my Christmas playlist!
Let’s get right to it!
Carol of the Bells – Pentatonix
I LOVE this song! The artists are insanely talented, the tune is amazing, and it’s such a Christmas classic. It’s mesmerizing to listen to and I love Pentatonix!
I’ll Be Home For Christmas – Bing Crosby
This one is an oldie but a goodie! 😉 It’s a beautiful song and a classic for sure, but it’s a little slow and also really sad when you listen to the lyrics (in a good way). I don’t listen to a lot of songs like this, so this was really cool! Although it was a melancholy type of song, I definitely enjoyed listening to it!
Run Rudolph Run – Chuck Berry
I haven’t heard this one in forever!! This one is a super fun and upbeat song. I’m not the biggest fan of rock-and-roll, but this one was pretty good!
It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas – Bing Crosby
This song is so amazing, and I’m constantly humming it around the house at the beginning of the year! I always love this one!
It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year – Andy Williams
As soon as this song comes on, I immediately think of my favorite Christmas tradition, which is driving around sipping hot chocolate while looking at Christmas lights with my family! New York also comes to mind for some reason. Love this song and the instant feeling you get from listening to it!
Rocking Around The Christmas Tree – Brenda Lee
Everything about this song immediately makes me think of Christmas, and the singer is so talented! (Fun fact: I just discovered that she was only 13 years old when she recorded this. That’s crazy!)
You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch
Haha, this song definitely brings back memories of Christmas recitals! Another Christmas tradition for us is that we always watch The Grinch (the original version). I definitely don’t listen to this one regularly, though.
(There’s No Place Like) Home for the Holidays – The Carpenters
I’ve actually never heard this song before! It was a good song, but kind of repetitive. It definitely got me in a Christmas-y mood!
A Charlie Brown Christmas “Linus and Lucy” – Peanuts Gang
It’s kind of impossible to listen to this song without smiling! I love A Charlie Brown Christmas, and this song totally brings back memories and makes me feel really happy!
The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late) – Alvin & The Chipmunks
Haha, I also did a dance to this one! Not one I’d listen to regularly, but definitely made me smile.
Winter Wonderland – Bing Crosby
I love this song! I like the Amy Grant version a lot, but this one is really good too! Definitely another classic and one that I always love hearing and hum around the house all the time.
Santa Claus Is Coming To Town – The Jackson 5
This version is so fun, and makes me really happy to listen to!
Silent Night – Hillsong
I know I keep saying this over and over again, but I love Hillson and this version! I’ve never heard this version before, but it’s so peaceful and relaxing.
We Three Kings – Kirk Franklin
Ooh I saw this movie a few years ago when it came out and really liked it! This song is super cool and catchy!
Alll I Want For Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey
Yessss, this song is my favorite! Like, is it even Christmas without Mariah Carey?
Rating: 11/10 😛
This was so fun! A huge thank-you to Mary for collaborating with me! I loved listening to your playlist and rediscovering some music that I love but haven’t listened to in a while. Once again, don’t forget to check out her post! See y’all tomorrow and Merry Christmas!!
