If you know me at all, you know it’s no secret that I’m unabashedly obsessed with Christmas music. Each year, I scour the internets for the best new Christmas songs, and ask my friends for recommendations. Each year, I painstakingly craft an epic Christmas playlist to embody my feelings about that year’s Christmas season. And I listen to holiday music pretty much exclusively from Black Friday through New Year’s Day. My iTunes account contains approximately 12 hours worth of Christmas and holiday tunes. And still I want more…
This year, I thought it would be fun to combine my love of making running playlists with my love of making Christmas playlists. Thus, my holiday running playlist was born. I think it’s a decent mix of classic and modern, old and new. I hope you like it!
