Boredwalk's Holiday Season Playlist: The Best Holiday Season Songs (Minus Mariah, Elmo, & Patsy)

Holiday Playlist

It's that time of year where you can't so much as go to the grocery store without being subjected to Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You" — or even worse, "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" — for seemingly the billionth time. Bah, humbug indeed!

If you're tired of played out holiday season songs, we've put together a playlist we think you'll enjoy. No grating "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" or creepy "Baby It's Cold Outside" here — our compilation will get you in the holiday spirit without the eye roll-inducing tunes that get played to death at this time of year. So slip on that ugly holiday sweater, spike that nog, and get groovin'!

*Note: Despite trying to keep things to more of a secular winter and/or snow-themed vibe, we're very much aware that the word "Christmas" appears a ridiculous number of times in the song titles on this playlist — no offense was meant by this. This is just what we have to work with within the context of Spotify's database. We're also very aware that not everyone celebrates that particular holiday. If you think we're missing some crucial Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Solstice, Yule, Bodhi Day, Id, or Eid tunes by pop artists that would be a good fit for the playlist, please let us know!

Hopefully this playlist gets your holiday season off on the right foot, regardless of how, what, and where you celebrate togetherness and giving in the coming weeks.

Peace, love, and goodwill to all,
