When the snow arrives, a softness seems to usher its way into the days and nights. And while I enjoy the classical lyrical Christmas and holiday music which nudge unconsciously your toes to tap and your body to sway and your voice to sing along, having a go-to non-lyrical holiday playlist can be played for days and weeks in the background of everyday routines, gently setting the mood for a festive season, subtly reminding me to slow down and savor.
A couple of years ago, I pulled together the former type of playlist (which I still play and enjoy), and now today, I would like to share with you a new holiday playlist – one that is entirely lyric-free (except for two classics which I have a feeling will still soothe your soul and spirit) .
Full of nearly two hours of music, enjoy both jazz and classical songs from Vince Guaraldi’s “Christmas is Coming” from Charlie Brown Christmas to the “Santa Claus, Christmas Symphony”. I do hope you enjoy, and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
