Christmas day has rolled around again! You’ve got your family and friends gathered, the presents are all wrapped, the food is prepped and you’re ready to kick back and enjoy the festivities! There’s only one thing missing.. The Ultimate Christmas Playlist.
There are so many classic Christmas songs to choose from when it comes creating a playlist. But which ones should you go for? Well, that really depends on what you’re looking for. If you’re after classic Christmas songs that will get everyone in the festive spirit, then you can’t go wrong with classics like ‘Jingle Bells’, ‘Deck the Halls’ and ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas’.
To put together your own Christmas playlist, you’ll want to consider the following steps:
- Determine the length of your playlist. You’ll want to have enough music to keep the party going, but not so much that it becomes overwhelming or repetitive.
- Choose a mix of classic and contemporary Christmas songs. While classic holiday tunes like “Jingle Bells” and “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” are always popular, consider adding some newer holiday hits to your playlist as well.
- Consider the genre of the music. To offer something to suit the tastes of the whole family, why not mix things up and play a variety of genres, including pop, rock, R&B, and electronic dance music (EDM).
- Create a balance between fast and slow songs. A good playlist will have a mix of fast-paced, energetic songs that are perfect for dancing, as well as slower, more laid-back tunes that are ideal for relaxing and socializing.
- Test out the playlist before the event. It’s a good idea to listen to your playlist in advance to make sure the songs flow well together and that the volume levels are consistent. This will help ensure that your playlist is a hit with your guests!
