6 Holiday Songs I Needed on My Playlist This Year

Can you believe we are at this point already? In about two weeks, we are going to be in 2023. I have to confess that I have had a hard time hopping into the holiday spirit. There is some serious shopping to be done, and it feels like I have so little time to do it.

Would it make me a Scrouge to say that it has been hard for me to get into Christmas this year? I’m not sure if it’s inflation that brings out the holiday cynic in me, or if I’ve just had my head down in the books and now I’m not prepared with Christmas in a week, but I’m not really feeling the Christmas vibes this year.

Something that is key to the vibe is music, so I’ve been trying to incorporate more into my December playlist. It might be something to share, so I’m going to share my six unique holiday songs to get me into the mood here.

My Highs and Lows of 2020

Cheers too 2021! As I settle into the year, I’ve been reflecting on 2020.

Maybe I say that as someone who has the privilege that I do, but I truly believe that you can’t experience the highs without the lows. Today, I wanted to take the time to reflect the highs and lows before I manifest for the coming year. Keep reading to find out more.
