"Here's your motivation: your name is Rudolph, you're a freak with a red nose, and no one likes you. Then, one day, Santa picks you and you save Christmas. No, forget that part. We'll improvise...just keep it kind of loosey-goosey. You hate Christmas! You're gonna steal it."
The Grinch is my favourite film of all time...ever...forever...not just for christmas. Hence the initial Whoville hootenanny. But now that I have got that out of my system, let us make haste towards the purpose of this post.
It's here again! Christmas has come around once more, as if it doesn't remember it was only yesterday. In a couple days it will be December, then it's full steam ahead.
I know that the retail world started celebrating christmas in October, but as far as I am concerned, you shouldn't even start thinking, fathoming or comprehending christmas until December 1st: That's when the tree and decorations go up. Thats when you jolt upright and think "Shit, presents!"
It's also when I deem it acceptable to start playing Christmas songs...You know where I'm going with this don't you?
Yep, that's right, it's song list time!
My favourite christmas songs have been collated (collated, not listened to) and are offered below in the form of a Spotify playlist. Head down and have a look, and if you can't wait until Thursday, feel free to enjoy it audibly too, I won't judge ya.
I wish you a happy end of November and a blissful start to December.
Until next time, enjoy.
All the best,
HERE IS THE XMAS PLAYLIST
Have I missed any that should never have been missed? Is your favourite not on the list? Christmas is a time for sharing so if you have a song that you think should be on the list then let me know in the comments and I'll add it....Unless it offends my ears of course.
P.S. I have put a video of one of my favourite scenes from The Grinch at the bottom of the post. Go ahead and absorb it's triumphant joy along with the playlist.
