To those who know me, it will come as no surprise that after a long blogging drought, all it takes is a little holiday cheer to get me in the writing mood again. It’s also no secret that I’ve mixed a few holiday carols into my daily musical repertoire since mid-summer, just to get me through the stagnant Florida heat and humidity (which, by the way, definitely helps). It may seem a little wacky and preemptive, but I’m not the only one.
Now that Halloween has come and gone, I’m heading full-force into Christmas. Thanksgiving is nice and all, but it’s really just a day of food insanity. No carols, no trees, no presents and no Santa. Forgive me if Thanksgiving is nothing more than a blip on the radar en route to Christmas.
For the third year and starting today, I’m soliciting suggestions and requests for your all-time favorite holiday tunes and compiling them on my 3rd Annual Twitter Christmas Playlist.
Share in the comments the Christmas (or holiday) song that whisks you back to childhood or one that you think MUST be heard at any good holiday party. Take a peek at my playlists from previous years over on Grooveshark or listen using the widgets below. I won’t use the same version of a song twice. On Dec. 1 I’ll publish my playlist and pick one random winner from the comments section who will win their very own DVD copy of one of my top-5 favorite Christmas movies of all-time.
Don’t be a Scrooge or a Grinch. It’s never too early to get in the holiday spirit!
