If you are like me, you love music and the Christmas season is one that has so many traditional and great songs, you could make a playlist 100 songs long and have all good ones on it. But the down side is everyone has the same list, and they put it on repeat from basically Halloween until the tree is down. With that much repetition you can get burnt out on the same ones year after year.
So if you would like to add a little spice to your play list here are some ideas.
The links will take you straight to the song if you have Spotify installed.
