Christmas has always been a big deal to me. Growing up in Miami, a glimpse of cold breeze and possible sweater weather would make the mystically majestic festiveness even more complete. Being Hispanic made something even more important around the holidays: the music.
Over the years I’ve curated a holiday music playlist that has centered around specific songs. There have been some releases that have truly given birth to some great covers of classics, and have also brought forth some new melodies and holiday lyrics to the general public (I’m talking about you Mariah, Leona Lewis and Kylie). And yes, it does end with Auld Lang Syne by Mariah because every holiday playlist should.
I’ve curated this list for the 2017 Holiday Nerd who needs a playlist to deliver some cheer. Hope you enjoy. Happy holidays and Merry Christmas to those who celebrate! All the best to you and yours.
