‘Deck The Halls’ – Music To Get You In The Mood For Christmas

Posted in Music

There’s no escaping the fact that Christmas is a little over a month away. Chances are the lights in your local town have been turned on, you’ve done quite a lot of your shopping and you’ve started to hear those Christmas tunes starting to fill your ears on the radio and in shops. The last week or so is always an important time for me as it’s when I finish my shopping (I do not like shopping in December) and it’s when I sit down in my makeshift Santa’s Grotto to wrap all of my presents. I am one of those weird people who absolutely loves wrapping presents, but you can’t do much wrapping without some music to accompany you.

The seasonal period is when Michael Buble comes out from his slumber (Like seriously do you ever hear him any other time of the year?!) and I like to dig out my more unusual Christmas albums such as the Punk goes Christmas album alongside overplaying the My Chemical Romance and The Used version of all I want for Christmas is you. Theres only certain times of the year it’s really acceptable to listen to Christmas music so embrace it and don’t become a scrooge.

Here’s a playlist to accompany you when you’re wrapping your presents/ baking/ cleaning your house/ any other damn thing over the next month. Enjoy!

What’s your favourite Christmas music?

  • I love the punk/rock Xmas songs! New Found Glory’s Ex-Miss and Fall Out Boy’s Yule Shoot Your Eye Out are among some of my favourites – and I have this MCR song on my Xmas playlist too!

  • LaaLaa

    I like the alternatives for xmas songs. I honestly rarely pay attention to them lol xo

  • My fave Christmas song is a classic and slightly cheesy, Chris de Burgh’s ‘A Spaceman Came Travelling’. :-)

  • That is actually one of my favorite songs, I don’t want a lot for Christmas! Great picks on songs!

  • My favourite song is all I want for Christmas, once that song comes on and the Coca-Cola add one then I am ready for the season lol

  • Melanie Edjourian

    I’m into a range of Christmas music from Mariah Carey to the Darkness it’s more interesting than to listen to the same ones alllll the time.

  • Great playlist, I love all Christmas songs to be honest, especially alternative songs

  • Laura

    I absolutely LOVE christmas music. All I Want For Christmas Is You is one of my faves but the Mariah Carey version! xxx

  • Paula

    Love this! My favorite christmas song it’s the first one of this list by My Chemical Romance, didn’t know they other ones in this list, so thanks for this!!!

  • Amy

    Michael Buble is always a good one to put on at Christmas! Great picks :)

  • I do love a bit of Buble… I think I may have to buy the album this year and drive everyone at home crazy!

  • Harriet @ Toby&Roo

    Oh I love me some Buble at Xmas! He has some of the classics sorted doesn’t he?!

  • Natasha Mairs

    I have been listening to Christmas song all day today, And Micheal Buble has been on at least 5 times. My favourite is Last Christmas by wham

  • Beautyqueenuk

    I have actually never come across this MCR tube until now and it is stuck in my head!

  • I love Christmas songs. Currently listening to a Christmas playlist on Spotify.

  • Nayna Kanabar

    I love Christmas carols and Christmas songs, it makes the atmosphere very festive.

  • We love listening to the Home Alone movie soundtrack to get us in the festive mood….random I know! 😉

  • i was thinking, buble had better be on that playlist! he’s the first person i think of when it comes to christmas. i haven’t heard of some of those versions in your list

  • I’m not a Christmas music fan Ok honestly I hate it. Although My Chemical Romance have made that version so much more bearable. I played slipknot and Limp Bizkit whilst wrapping prezzies up the other day x

  • I love christmas music, but pretty much the oldies, Doris Day, Bing Crosby etc. Anything beyond the 60’s makes me want to pour superglue in my ears!!

  • Kathryn

    I went to Orlando last week and Christmas songs were everywhere so i am definitely in the mood haha xx

  • I was just saying yesterday that it must be time to dig out the Christmas CDs now! I love pretty much any Christmas music apart from X Factor 😉
