Monday Mixtape: Rockin’ the Christmas Season

Everyone knows all the classic Christmas songs, like All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey and White Christmas of Bing Crosby, and able to memorize the lyrics by heart. We won’t be tired listening to them, but it’s about time that we include something new for the Yuletide Playlist.

There are some big names here along with their Christmas hits and some are a little less mainstream, but perfect for blasting out on your stereo this festive season. You may heard them from a long time ago, and tell to yourself that it’s familiar. These songs are not frequently used for during the holidays but it’ll be worth it when we try to hear something new, and old yet induced with different creative takes.
