It’s that time of the year again, ninjas. Snow is covering the ground (well, not here in Denver, surprisingly), the lights are up, we’re all scrambling to figure out what to buy our friends and family, and the same damn music is being played at every store, restaurant, and public space.
While we have to give credit to the timeless classics from the likes of Andy Williams, Elvis Presley, and Perry Como, it’s always nice to change things up with some more modern takes on these timeless songs.
This time around, we’ve crafted a playlist of some brand new holiday songs, and a few of our favorites from the past few years. If you can manage to wrangle control of the family stereo at dinner this year, throw this playlist on. You might even play a new favorite for you Mom and Dad.
Happy holidays from all of us at The Music Ninja. We hope you enjoy good food, good company, and good tunes.
