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.

Decoding emails i can’t send by Sabrina Carpenter

So what I really wanted to do for this blog post was share a summer playlist, but the summer is slowly coming to an end since I start grad school next week. Plus, the truth is that I have had this album on repeat since it came out, so even if I were to curate a playlist now, it would probably incorporate all the songs on this album anyway.

At the end of the day, I have been a fan of Sabrina Carpenter since she was on Girl Meets World. I’m a fan of her, her music, and her acting career. She’s been a guest on my favorite podcast, and Sabrina was the first concert that I took my babysister to. So when Olivia Rodrigo dropped “Driver’s License” and her album, the Sabrina fan in me did not want to support her music at all. Not that she needed me to, since everyone knows who Olivia Rodrigo is now.

Since then, Sabrina has been pretty quiet and low-key. Sure, there has been a song here and there, but for the most part, this album has been the first time we’ve really heard from Sabrina since everything happened. So of course, I can’t wait to dissect it, and that is going to be the blog today.
