I love the holiday season, really I do. But most Christmas music wears pretty thin really quickly for me. 

However, the only Christmas music you need is Vince Guaraldi’s soundtrack for A Charlie Brown Christmas. You can put it on repeat for the whole month and never wear it out. It’s a truly great jazz album, not just a great holiday album. 

Here it is on YouTube. Or go buy it on iTunes

Also, Bruce Springsteen’s version of Santa Claus Is Coming To Town is as joyful and hip as any Christmas song I know. My kids know I’ll sing my heart out whenever this one comes on.
