Christmas Carols

22 Dec

Spotify mixes for your holiday enjoyment


I’m a Christmas Music Fanatic. I know them all and am very opinionated about what is best. So I was going to do a big post on the best Christmas Music… yet I’ve found, over the years, that wading into discussions about the best Christmas Music is fraught with more danger than throwing left and right wing people into a room to discuss impeachment.

You think debating politics is bad at a family gathering? Try Christmas Carols!

So when I thought I would post about all my favorites, I wisely decided to refrain. But…

I’m not only a Christmas Music Fanatic (with a few exceptions, I’m generally old school, all the way… talk to the hand, for instance, if you prefer the abominable Madonna Santa Baby over Eartha Kitt… in fact, just de-friend me right now) but I’m a playlist fanatic. I’ve spent years tweaking and perfecting a playlist. 

So instead of listing music, I want to direct you, if you Spotify, to my Christmas playlists. You’ll see what I like and I believe you will be pleased.

Note: you can click on these and access Spotify.. or just find me on Spotify: provostom


For a classic Christmas Carol playlist, mostly upbeat but with some slow, A Classic Christmas Mix:


For a slow, gorgeous night before the fire, A Romantic Christmas Night:


If you’re having a Christmas Party this has a lot of Christmas music but other music as well. It’s almost 7 hours, it will survive just about any Christmas Party!

And, if you dare, let us know your favorites!

    Wonderful lists! … My single favorite Christmas album? Harry Connick’s “When My Heart Finds Christmas.” Not a big fan of the title track, but “It Must Have Been Old Santa Claus” and “I Pray on Christmas” make me happy every year, and his “O Holy Night” is the only one I’ve heard with all 3 verses. A must-listen!

      I love that one, too, Janet! Some friends of mine saw him last night in New York and said it was amazing.
