Christmas music that won't make you want to stuff your ears full of sugarplums.
Not Your Usual Christmas Mix
Those who know me know that I'm not generally a fan of Christmas music. The holidays seem to bring out the worst clichés in even the best of songwriters, and hearing the same overwrought arrangements of the same couple dozen songs that make up the American Christmas music canon for months on end is enough to drive me to Grinchdom. But goodness knows we could all use some tidings of joy these days, so I've put together a playlist featuring either original holiday songs or arrangements of the more traditional tunes that you're not going to hear on your local Lite FM station.
If you're a Spotify user, I've also got a version of the list available there.
