The 45 Best Classic Christmas Songs!

If you know me, then you know that I love Christmas. It's my favorite holiday and long before December even rolls around, I'm in full decorating mode. Usually I *try* to wait until after Thanksgiving to put my tree up, but this year feels like it's been 5 years wrapped into one so I put my tree up the first week of November. I know it's wayyyy early, but I was feeling a little down in the dumps and Christmas-y things always cheer me up, so I pulled out all my decorations and worked on it over a 2-week period. My around-the-house décor is a little lacking this year, but the tree turned out so nice! I also always set up a little tree with some of our vintage ornaments - Seely loves it a little too much so I had to tape it down.

Anyhow, it was a great couple of weeks slowly putting everything together, but I couldn't truly be in the holiday spirit without listening to my favorite Christmas songs - so I built a playlist with the 45 Best Classic Christmas Songs (in my opinion) to share with you! I use Spotify for all my music and they have a couple holiday playlists already curated, but they were either too short or too new - I'm more into the classics, with a *few* exceptions. There's about 140 minutes to listen to while you decorate, bake cookies, or lounge in your pj's (nobody's judging).

Enjoy!
