Non-Festive Festive Playlist

Saturday, 16 December 2017

Before I start this post, I would like to let you know that I, Aycan, have written this post, and all thoughts are my own. I shall now begin.

Christmas music drives me crazy!

It’s not that I don’t like it, it’s just excessive. I love everything about Christmas. I love how over the top it gets every single year. I even started my blogmas in September, but Christmas songs is just a huge no for me. Am I the only one who is bored of hearing 'Jingle Bells' during every single advert, and every time you walk into a shop? I’m sure it's some sort of clever marketing technique to put us in the Christmas spirit, but it makes me want to run a mile.

I sound like a Scrooge right now don't I? Don't get me wrong, I love singing along to 'Last Christmas' at the top of my lungs while dancing around with tinsel as much as the next person, but sometimes, I need it a little mellow. Christmas is stressful. Very stressful. Sometimes I want to relax a little and listen to something new. That is why I have put together this not so festive, festive playlist. A way you can get in the festive spirit, without your typical festive songs. These songs are perfect for creating a relaxing atmosphere (as relaxing as you can get) during a shopping trip, getting cosy under the duvet reading your favourite blog posts, or wrapping up your presents. Just to prove I'm not a total Scrooge, I have included a few Christmas songs, some of which are covers, and some which aren't your typical Christmas songs, so they don't really count. Enjoy!
