Thanksgiving has come and gone, which means that homes and storefronts across the nation have switched out their turkeys and pilgrims for mistletoe and Christmas trees. By some unwritten law, it also means that everyone on Earth is allowed to play nothing but Christmas songs for the next 30 days.
Personally, we’re ready for some of these holiday music traditions to expire. For Music Monday, we wanted to offer an alternate soundtrack to the endless renditions of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” and “Jingle Bells” that will undoubtedly dominate the airwaves until the year’s end.
In formal protest to the nonstop airplay of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” we put together a Spotify playlist of the songs we’d rather listen to.
