The holiday season is upon us and it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I can still remember what it felt like to wake up as a kid on Christmas morning. All the excitement, and slight anxiety, waiting to see if Santa brought me the top item on my Christmas list. Then, there’s the rush of joy and relief that washes over me when I finally unwrap the present I’ve been asking for all year. There’s no other feeling like that for a child and as the Christmases go by, we all start to lose that sense of euphoria.
To help make it feel magical again, I picked my top 14 most nostalgic Christmas songs (in no particular order) from my childhood to listen to. I encourage you to make your own nostalgic Christmas playlist this holiday season and see if it helps you relive some of those special holiday moments.
Happy Holidays Everyone!
