Holiday-themed music delivers a mixed bag of opinions. Some enjoy the indulgence of yearly nostalgia, the loveably kitschy tunes and refrains, while others find it less than charming for these very reasons. So for this holiday playlist, we’re avoiding (too many) cliches and keeping it fun and warm. You may not be sitting by a fire in a ski lodge or dancing at an annual holiday party, but this playlist may induce just the right amount of holiday spirit to mentally transport you to either of those settings. It’s a feel-good holiday playlist for whatever festivities you have planned, even if they just involve ordering-in Chinese food and watching a Christmas movie.
